I get result:

mike at karper:/dev/shm/imagination$ /bin/grep -i msgfmt config.log
configure:6169: checking for msgfmt
configure:6187: found /usr/bin/msgfmt
configure:6199: result: /usr/bin/msgfmt

mike at karper:/dev/shm/imagination$ ./ | /bin/grep -B5 -i msgfmt
checking for intltool-update... /usr/bin/intltool-update
checking for intltool-merge... /usr/bin/intltool-merge
checking for intltool-extract... /usr/bin/intltool-extract
checking for xgettext... /usr/bin/xgettext
checking for msgmerge... /usr/bin/msgmerge
checking for msgfmt... /usr/bin/msgfmt

I don't know what the problem is however.
