I wanbted to add gettext being that the cleanest solution for the moment. 
But I found that I have

gettext-0.10.40p1   GNU gettext


on openbsd pports install in /usr/local and my config line is already:
./kaffe/configure --with-includes=/usr/local/include --with-libraries=/
local/lib -C --with-jikes=/usr/local/bin/jikes

so it should have no toruble !

configure:24286: checking for xgettext
configure:24320: result: no

I think you might have just forgotten a linker flag (like -lintl?): look 
at this output of configure.log

configure:25010: checking for GNU gettext in libc
configure:25065: result: no
configure:25099: checking for iconv
configure:25211: result: yes
configure:25221: checking how to link with libiconv
configure:25223: result: -liconv
configure:25612: checking for GNU gettext in libintl
configure:25735: result: yes
configure:25764: checking whether to use NLS
configure:25766: result: yes
configure:25769: checking where the gettext function comes from
configure:25780: result: external libintl
configure:25788: checking how to link with libintl
configure:25790: result: -lintl
