cerbero bootstrap problem

I'm trying to set up cerbero so I can build gstreamer for Win32, and I am
having difficulty getting the bootstrap to complete.

The error I get is:  "Recipe 'gettext' failed at the build step 'compile'"
(more detail below).

OS is Windows 7 Professional

I followed the setup instructions in

For git we normally have core.autocrlf set globally to true on Windows, so
prior to cloning cerbero I set it false globally, did the clone, set it
true globally again, and set it false locally within ~/cerbero.

For ~/.cerbero/cerbero.cbc I have:
import os
from cerbero.config import Platform, Architecture, Distro, DistroVersion


I found I had to disable Avast antivirus while doing the bootstrap because
it thought conftest.exe was suspicous (Win32:Evo-gen).

Following is the context for the error message:

Any help appreciated!
