Stumbled across the same thing last week while working on glib
when trying out a freshly installed MinGW/MSYS through the new
mingw-get package manager. The newer MinGW tools now come with NLS
support out of the box, which explains why we didn't have this
problem with say a gcc-4.5.0 era MinGW.

The quick workaround I'm using for now (from an MSYS bash session):
$ mv /mingw/lib/libintl.a /mingw/lib/libintl.a_
$ mv /mingw/lib/libintl.dll.a /mingw/lib/libintl.dll.a_
$ mv /mingw/lib/ /mingw/lib/libintl.la_

The proper solution would be to figure out why ./configure picks
the libintl version from /ming/lib instead of /c/GTK/lib
even when /c/GTK/bin is on PATH *before* /mingw/bin. But I'm busy
with other things atm...
