Sure, but in the case of IRIX and OSF, configure found the gettext
routines by linking against -lintl.  If that works, it ought to set
INTLLIBS accordingly.  My hardcoding of -lintl wasn't meant to be a
general solution.  I just meant to demonstrate that configure should
be setting this when it's required to find gettext routines.  (Again, I
don't know why it doesn't look in -lintl for dcgettext.)

You may be right about that.  My personal suspicion is that the
autoconf rules associated with gettext are broken.  I suppose that's
not your problem.

Well, actually it's an international laboratory.  Less than 1/4 of our
staff are native English speakers.  Point taken, though.
