Hmm, I'm not sure if that's the reason:

After configuring mc-4.6.0-pre1 I have in config.status:

s,@INTLBISON@,bison,;t t

instead of mc-4.5.55/config.status:

s,@INTLBISON@,:,;t t

(bison-1.35 worked fine). But this is probably the fix in gettextutils.

There's currently:

$ grep INTL config.status
s,@INTLBISON@,bison,;t t
s,@INTLLIBS@,-lintl -liconv,;t t
s,@INTLOBJS@,,;t t

so seems that these got removed:

s,@LINTL@,,;t t
s,@INTLDEPS@,,;t t

But I guess original @LINTL@ is now @INTLLIBS@ and this is I think the
real fix for my problem. When linking mc, -lintl was used used on my box
(Irix 6.5.15f).

Actually, I think I've seen more notes related to -lintl in the Changelog
(either for mc-4.5.55 or 4.6.0-pre1), but I see now there's only only one
note in src/Changelog from:

Thu May 14 01:56:11 1998  Norbert Warmuth  <k3190 fh-sw de>

I wanted to say that I do not where where this change from LINTL to
INTLLIBS happened. But that;'s not my problem.

It seemed to me that one has to include probably mode system header files
on this version, but I'm not a programmer so you are supposedly right.
