If you're really getting errors on this issue, then that's a bug in LFS. 
  I imagine a lot of people have emacs on their host system (I do), but 
I've never heard any problems with it and gettext before.

Regardless, you can handle the way most people (I think) handle circular 
dependencies: make 2 passes.  You could have an ncurses-pass1, 
texinfo-pass1 or whatever.  And your other solution sounds fine anyway. 
  What do you care if the temporary emacs is broken?  As long as you can 
get gettext to build correctly, you can come back later and build emacs 
to your heart's content.
