Try using "configure --with-include-gettext".  That should solve the
problem; it's caused by your system having too old a copy of the
gettext library, and automatic autoconf macros supplied by gettext
aren't particularly good at handling backwards compatibility with
older gettext implementations.

Or you could just ignore the errors; the errors occured trying to
build the translation data files, which happens at the end of the
build process, and everything else important has been built.  So if
you don't care about seeing e2fsck messages being output in Polish or
Turkish, you can just ignore the errors.  :-)
