trying to build mate file manager:error: /usr/lib/.libs/libgnuintl.so: No such file
 
I'm trying to build MATE desktop environment from source in my linux from scratch made distro but I get the following error building mate file manager:

gcc: error: /usr/lib/.libs/libgnuintl.so: No such file or directory
make: *** [check-program] Error 1

I've tried to find where to get that lib with no success. Gettetxt is supposed to have that lib but nothing like that lib is installed...

the libs were at a .libs/ directory inside the package after the build
 
the libs were at a .libs/ directory inside the package after the build: gettext-0.18.1.1/gettext-tools/intl/.libs:

bindtextdom.o finddomain.o libgnuintl.la localealias.o plural.o
dcgettext.o gettext.o libgnuintl.lai localename.o printf.o
dcigettext.o hash-string.o libgnuintl.so lock.o relocatable.o
dcngettext.o intl-compat.o libgnuintl.so.8 log.o setlocale.o
dgettext.o l10nflist.o libgnuintl.so.8.1.1 ngettext.o textdomain.o
dngettext.o langprefs.o loadmsgcat.o osdep.o threadlib.o
explodename.o libgnuintl.a localcharset.o plural-exp.o version.o

So my solution was to mv the mentioned *.so and *.la libs to /usr/lib
