RE: -lintl is not being picked up on solaris 2.8 with binutils 2. 14

I installed gettext before I configured binutils.

I also had the last gettext (0.13) installed in /usr/local.

When I configured again on solaris8, I got:
checking for LC_MESSAGES... yes
checking whether NLS is requested... yes
checking whether included gettext is requested... no
checking for libintl.h... yes
checking for gettext in libc... no
checking for bindtextdomain in -lintl... yes
checking for gettext in libintl... yes
checking for msgfmt... /usr/local/bin/msgfmt
checking for dcgettext... yes
checking for gmsgfmt... /usr/local/bin/msgfmt
checking for xgettext... /usr/local/bin/xgettext
updating cache .././config.cache

I also had these problems in a previous 2.14 build...it doesn't appear
to have been a problem on 2.13.1  (not positive) -- 
this is on solaris with a gettext installed --
don't know about how it works without a gettext installed.
