Yes, I thought of that, but that would result in an unused -I../intl
option being output by 'make' for every compilation command.  I
dislike longer 'gcc ...' lines, since they make it harder to follow
what the build is actually doing.  An extra -I../intl is not a big
deal by itself, but every word adds up.

As I understand it, the long-term goal is to eliminate the -I../intl
approach entirely, since it had problems and core utilities don't use
it any more.  If this is just a bridge then I guess it's OK -- I'll
just edit the output of gnulib-tool until the -I../intl stuff goes
away.  But if the long-term goal is to retain support for -I../intl
then I'd prefer it if those who don't use that approach aren't
bothered by unnecessary 'make' output.  It's just a mild preference,
though -- it's not high priority.
