By default GNU packages install to /usr/local unless otherwise
directed via --prefix.  Therefore GNU packages that depend on GNU
packages should include /usr/local in their search path by default.

gnome-core-1.1.4 and gnome-applets-1.1.4 seem to discover libintl in
/usr/local without command-line intervention.  Since they and
bug-buddy use AM_GNOME_GETTEXT, I'm not sure why bug-buddy isn't
finding it.
