Yeah.  Updating src/intl to match gcc/intl is on my list but I am not
going to get to it soon.

I'm not familiar with src-release so I have no idea whether this will
be a problem.  What will happen eventually is, gcc/intl will be copied
over to src/intl, and everyone's configure scripts will be modified to
match.  Testing this change is a bit daunting, which is one of the
reasons I haven't gotten to it.  Help would be appreciated.  (Note I
am moving, so I may not respond to mail in a timely fashion for the
next week or so.)
