You are missing msgfmt which comes with gettext
Unfortunately, gettext is absent from the OVS public repository (http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleVM/OVM3/latest/x86_64/).

You are (at least) missing 'gcc'. I'd recommend playing with yum-builddep
to get all the needed dependencies, or trying to rebuild an existing
.src.rpm using mock.
Unfortunately, gcc is also absent from the OVS public repository (http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleVM/OVM3/latest/x86_64/).

Have you got any other suggestions (besides to give up on extending Oracle VM Server 3)?
