Bootstrap broken because of missing intl routines

	Nope.  I always bootstrap on AIX with --disable-nls, and that now

So, Zack's patch appears to now require NLS support on all systems and
break --disable-nls configuration, which is unacceptable.

	Remember that will be offline tomorrow morning for "a
few hours" to move the machine to a new co-location facility, so all of
these problems are not going to be fixed until the machine comes back up.

	I again STRONGLY voice my displeasure at a development cycle that
solely is based on dates and not functionality.  Yes, we need to have
milestones associated with dates, but leading developers to believe that
they need to commit functionality earlier than they feel it is ready and
fully tested to meet some inflexible deadline only leads to the current

	I would recommend goal dates and goal features with regular
updates of which features are on target.  If we know about a large change
and it will be a little late to meet the Stage 1 deadline, we can
accomodate the slippage for individual features.  Instead we have a
perceived hard deadline for a mysterious set of features, which serves no
