installing kmetronome got me a warning about msgfmt missing. After installing
gettext, install went like it shoud.
Otherwise great program!

The build system detects that you don't have a needed program, and gives you an error (not a warning) and cancels. You must then investigate and discover the name given to the required package in your installed distribution, and after installing the missing dependency the problem is gone. The whole process works as it was designed.
I can think only a single way to consider this a bug. Open a bug report to your distribution asking to include "kmetronome" in the package repositories.
