Run 'port installed gettext'. If it's not installed you should certainly
install it, though you shouldn't be able to get to the point of building
one of its dependents without it.

If it is installed, check 'port contents gettext' for that dylib. If
it's listed but not actually present in the filesystem, something must
have deleted it after the port was installed. You can try to get it back
with 'port deactivate gettext' followed by 'port activate gettext'.
