This error occurs in src/main/Makefile.
I'm not really understanding what's going on here but I was wondering why '-lintl' would be a target. It became a target in R-devel r36724 (2005-12-13).
In fact, a big change occured in src/main/ between r36723 and r36724. One of them is the introduction of the COMMON_DEPENDENCIES variable:


+       $(R_XDR) @LIBINTL@ \
+       @USE_EXPORTFILES_TRUE@ $(top_builddir)/etc/R.exp

If I remove @LIBINTL@ from this definition, it happens that I can build and run
last R-devel on all platforms I have access to: Windows, 64-bit SuSE Linux 9.2,
32-bit SuSE Linux 9.2, Solaris 2.9 AND Mac OS X. Not sure what this @LIBINTL@ dependency is needed for however...

I attached the file containing my svn diff output.
