sure - but if / when u upgrade libintl.so.6 to, say, .7. or .8, it will break. 
.so (no version @ end) will still be there.

good point, never tried with /usr/local/etc - it is /etc/libmap.conf , from the 
man page:
FILES
     /etc/libmap.conf    The libmap configuration file.
     /etc/libmap32.conf  The libmap configuration file for 32-bit binaries on
                         64-bit system.


Best,
