It's in the libintl library, not Python gettext.  Another dependency to worry about on OS X.  I'll dig up my notes later this evening for you.

However, at least a few years back, GRASS that I compiled came up in Spanish on my colleague's machines--either because the with-nls flag dates to a few years back or because it worked in spite of not compiling with-nls. No one told me when this stopped working and my builds were only in English, so I'm in the dark on  that.

"Mon Dieu! but they are all alike.  Cheating, murdering, lying, fighting, and all for things that the beasts of the jungle would not deign to possess - money to purchase the effeminate pleasures of weaklings.  And yet withal bound down by silly customs that make them slaves to their unhappy lot while firm in the belief that they be the lords of creation enjoying the only real pleasures of existence....
