I suppose that intl.h is a typo for libintl.h

According to intl/, libintl is not installed:

# The installation targets have been disabled.
install: install-exec install-data
install-exec: all
install-data: all
install-strip: install

So your libintl.h doesn't come from binutils (apparently).

(I haven't check how things work when a libbfd all is built with the libintl
provided by binutils.  There might be an hole here).
