Morning Frank, 

After trying out a couple of things which didn't work ( recompiling 
everything etc ) I tried; 

1) created the directory ../intl and created a symlink from 
/tools/lib/libintl.la to ../intl/libintl.la. gnu-lib compiled after but i 
felt this was 'dirty' so step 2 

2) After running the configure script, run 'make -C intl', 'make -C 
gnu-lib', then make msgfmt. The build completes successfully but I don't 
understand why the libraries in /tools/lib are not used by the configure 
script and make. I tried changing LDFLAGS, CPPFLAGS but all was in vain. So 
I just stuck to making intl before gnu-lib 

Someone please school me on this.
