/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=uninstall rm -f /usr/lib/libgnuintl.la
But the buildlink system changed the path to the buildlink directory, so
the real files were still installed.

How can I get this "--mode=uninstall" skipped by the buildlink wrappers?

make some /preloadable_libintl.so.
Is it normal for software builds to install some libraries, use them to
create a new binary, then delete?
