I've been pulling my hair out trying to build a new cygutils package on

32-bit fails with the following...
libtool: error: cannot find the library '/usr/lib/libintl.la' or
unhandled argument '/usr/lib/libintl.la'
it is pulled by /usr/lib/libpopt.la.
$ cd /usr/lib
$ mv libpopt.la libpopt.la_bk
and run again make in build
Amazing. That does work. But what is the correct way to deal with this
when some random user wants to build 32-bit cygutils from source?
Should the build procedure actually do what you suggested? I could not
figure out which package supplies (or used to supply) libintl.la for 32
we should remove the not needed /usr/lib/*.la (not all)
as we did from start on the 64bit version
