I didn't seem to have gettext at all, so I installed version 0.14.1. 
And ./configure said:

checking for xgettext... (cached) no

whereis xgettext
xgettext: /usr/local/bin/xgettext

Then I found an option to configure using the included gettext as you 
mention above. That initially gave

/bin/chmod +x mk_cmds
../et/compile_et --build-tree ./ss_err.et
../et/compile_et: /usr/bin/awk: No such file or directory
../et/compile_et: /usr/bin/awk: No such file or directory
make[2]: *** [ss_err.c] Error 127

which I now realize occurs because it is hard-coded to look for awk 
in /usr/bin.

I just tried again after symlinking awk in /usr/bin and got:

: multiple definition of `_nl_find_msg'
first defined here
/usr/bin/ld: Warning: size of symbol `_nl_find_msg' changed from 1325 
in ../intl/libintl.a(dcigettext.o) to 1309 in

I just ended up compiling with  ./configure --disable-nls
