I am trying to build LFS using the cvs and noticed the warning in the book
about msgfmt.  I found this earlier and fixed on my computer.  My base
system is Debian 3.0 (woody).

The fix that I found was to install the gettext package.  The system by
default installs gettext-base, which doesn't contain the needed program.
After doing this the error went away.

Just thought you might be interested.
