XDT_I18N breaks for me:

./configure: line 20969: syntax error near unexpected token `('
./configure: line 20969: `    GETTEXT_PACKAGE=AC_PACKAGE_TARNAME()'

The relevant lines in configure script are:


cat >>confdefs.h <<_ACEOF

    ALL_LINGUAS="ar az be bg ca cs de en_GB es es_MX et eu fa fi fr gu
