So issue is caused by libglib2 here:

    libglib2-2.56.4/gio/gunixconnection.c +566

with the code:

---------------8<------------------------------
560           g_set_error (error,
561                        G_IO_ERROR,
562                        G_IO_ERROR_FAILED,
563                        ngettext("Expecting 1 control message, got %d",
564                                 "Expecting 1 control message, got %d",
565                                 nscm),
566                        nscm);
567           goto out;
--------------->8------------------------------

so g_set_error takes formatted string which gcc does not like, but in
case of disabled INTL macrosses in gettext-tiny the declared functions
are used with special gcc attibutes which does not cause the issue.

I think that may be package/Makefile.in is not good place for this but
better to add another patch which will disable these macrosses ?
