I've done "apt-file update" and then "apt-file search msgfmt" returns nothing.
It makes me think it comes not from a package... strange.

It does not work for me on a completely unstable (upgraded and

More, I have gettext (and then /usr/bin/msgfmt) installed.

you could alternatively try
dpkg -S msgfmt

What output does this yield?


man dpkg:
              dpkg -S | --search filename-search-pattern ...
                  Search for a filename from installed packages.
