libintl can be tricky to link with sometimes; I'd recommend checking heimdal's gettext dependency to make sure it's used properly.

most of the ports for which you opened tickets recently have no maintainer listed, which makes it less likely to get fixed anytime soon. On the other hand, you seem to be interested in the port (otherwise you wouldn't open a ticket) and have an idea of what could be wrong (here perhaps gettext) in many others due to implicit-function-declaration. Please consider trying to fix these things and submit a PR to have them include in the repository.

one step at a time; I want to finish filing the tickets I have in my backlog before I move on to trying to fix them myself...

This specific issue might be the well-known macOS 11+ libtool bug. It wasn't clear from the log, since the build system used silent rules; I already fixed the port to disable silent rules.

heimdal also has a lot of implicit declaration of function problems, even in their latest code. I filed a bug report: https://github.com/heimdal/heimdal/issues/790

We should also update heimdal to the latest 7.7.0, though it is 2 years old.
