The problem was in the p5-XML-Parser package, which wasn't linked well
against expat. After I rebuilt it (no changes to pkgsrc!), intltool
built fine.

I also had to rebuild py-expat and one more package, I forgot which.

I wonder why it was necessary....

intltool, and its failure to detect p5-XML-Parser, has been a continuous source of problems in the past.  I guess that, in this case, the issue is similar than before: did you upgrade expat using make replace?  If that's the case, maybe the ABI of it changed and this fact wasn't correctly represented in its file...
