Harmless, as far as I know.

This is because of a gettext library bump, I just found out about it
(although it happened in march), and I have know good solution to it.
Installing an old version of gettext should of course work, but that's

This is life with binary only, closed source applications. Things might
have been slightly better if this was statically linked but
unfortunately that's not the case.
misc/compat6x should hopefully cover the threading though.
When I get some spare time, I'll try to ping my contact at UPEK,
but last time I heard from them they were developing a new version
but nothing have been released yet, so things aren't looking good.
If nothing works out, I'm afraid this port have seen its last days.
