Ugh. My guess is that both libc and libintl have the relevant
functions, but libintl.h provides macros which redirect to the
libintl_* versions. So configure detects that libintl isn't needed,
but the inclusion of <libintl.h> by glocale.h changes that.

Can you test the attached patch (after patching configure.in, the
configure script needs to be re-built with autoconf 2.13)?
