That might indeed affect the way something is built, especially if
the process assumes a Debian system. Maybe I can just get a copy of
the English POT file? I'm only planning to translate it and submit
it, not build it or do anything else extra.

I don't think it really assumes a Debian system, but it does explain why
something can be missing. If you'd installed the packages on a Debian
system, that would take care that all needed dependencies are installed
too. Apparently you are missing something.

If I search for nsgmls on my system, I get that it is part of the "sp"
Version: 1.3.4-1.2.1-47
Description: James Clark's SGML parsing tools
 This package is a collection of SGML/XML tools called SP.

 These tools are used to parse, validate, and normalize SGML and XML
 files.  The central programs included in this package are 'nsgmls',
 which replaces sgmls, 'spam', 'spent', 'sgmlnorm', and 'sgml2xml'.

See if you can find that for your system.

Fink doesn't list it. Fink is our main packaging system, using apt and dpkg. ;)

It lists docbook-utils, for use with sgml, but that's about it. I can install sp from source (there are no binaries for OSX), but there are also no install instructions for OSX, and the install is not default.

I'll try to find out more about this package and OSX. Installing an "edit the makefile" package from source, bypassing the package manager, means, as you would know, a fair chance of breaking dependencies somewhere.

In the mean time I have committed an initial PO file for vi in CVS, so if you 'cvs up', you should be able to start translating. (You may have to
delete the "vi" directory you created yourself first.)

I did delete the "vi" directory first, and strangely enough, "cvs up" updated everything _but_ the "vi" directory. I have no idea why.

So for now, I've just grabbed the .po file from WebCVS. (Note, for people wanting to look at or get previous Debian CVS files from WebCVS, you need to change old addresses from "cvs.alioth.debian.org" to just "cvs.debian.org".)

I can get on with that for now. :)

Note that this PO file will not be updated automatically, so you'll either
have to fix the problem on your system or ask someone to run an update
for you every once in a while.

I hope I get it sorted out, but if I get stuck, I'll ask. :)

Thanks again for your help, Frans. I appreciate it.
