What distribution are you running?

On my redhat system, output of rpm -qif `locate libintl.h` gives:
Name: glibc-devel                  Relocations: (not relocateable)

Summary: Additional libraries required to compile
To develop programs which use the standard C libraries (which nearly all
programs do), the system needs to have these standard header files and
object files available for creating the executables.

If you're running redhat, just make sure you've got this rpm installed.
Otherwise, I think it is available (libintl) as a tarball.

Here's the first few lines of my libintl.h:

/* libintl.h -- Message catalogs for internationalization.

----- etc. 

Hope that helps in some way...
