Sanity test should check for /usr/bin/msgfmt

      Description

      The deploy workspace build uses /usr/bin/msgfmt on Linux (and I assume
      Solaris), but this tool is not installed by default on RHAS 2.1. Please
      add some logic to this workspace's sanity test to check for the presence
      of /usr/bin/msgfmt and, on Linux, to suggest that the appropriate package
      (in this case gettext, which is on the second RHAS 2.1 CD) be installed.

        BT2:EVALUATION

        Upon investigating this issue, I noticed that the msgfmt exec is being
        called directly from the Makefile scripts. All OS commands should be
        called using a Makefile variable $(MSGFMT), this allows single-point
        correction, if the location of the executable changes, for whatever reason.

        These changes and the msgfmt was introduced by the L10N team. Upon
        discussion with mfang, I am reassigning this bug to the L10N for team
        for further evaluation and fix.
