Thanks for the patch. While your change resolved the problem. It
didn't really find the root cause. const char foo[] = "foo" is valid.
N_() is a no-op macro intended to tell gettext that the string should be
marked for translation. However we had it defined as:
#define N_(x) (x)

For whatever reason your compiler rejects:
char foo[] = ("foo");

Our solution is to use:
#define N_(x) x

This was changed in r11486. The fix should be in 1.1.1. If you'd like
to try it now to see if it works you can get the patch by doing:
svn diff -r11485:11486 http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk

After patching your source you will need to run autogen.sh and

I'm closing Issue #2082 as a result.
