I think we need more information to know if this is a good idea. The other libs in EMPTY_LIBS are standard names specified by POSIX, whereas libintl is a GNU thing, and I think some distros are using GNU libintl alongside musl (mainly for legacy reasons). Adding this might break things for them. From what I remember, the core problem here is that the autoconf tests for gettext wrongly detect that musl does not have a suitable gettext (because they probe for glibc-internal symbols) and these packages are trying to use an external GNU libintl instead. Perhaps someone who's followed the issue closely could link to the old threads on it, or bugtracker items? Rich
