Could someone send me the linking error when -lintl is needed but not 
used?  That should indicate which symbols were missing.  Then its a simple 
matter of picking one for probing with AC_SEARCH_LIBS.  A list of the 
symbols defined in -lintl would also be helpful.


P.S.  You can send these files to me directly; most people on the list 
wouldn't care.
