I believe that the rule which failed is :

	file=$(srcdir)/`echo $* | sed 's,.*/,,'`.gmo \
	  && rm -f $$file && $(GMSGFMT) -o $$file $<

In the same Makefile, the variable GMSGFMT was set as follows :

GMSGFMT = PATH=../src:$$PATH /usr/bin/msgfmt

'no' is probably the substitution string taht 'configure' used when
it didn't find this program ( the configure script should have failed;
check your config.log if you still have it  )

Finally, dpkg -S msgfmt says :

MyDesktop:~$ dpkg -S msgfmt
gettext: /usr/bin/msgfmt

So, try intalling gettext package and compiling again.

Of course, if you have it already, I'm completely wrong :-)
