The intl directory is shared between GCC and binutils-gdb (I suspect 
nothing uses the copy in the src CVS repository now, but in principle it's 
shared with that too); I advise updating GCC first.  The master is in GNU 
gettext, and the intl/README file explains the changes that were made when 
importing libintl from GNU gettext and that would need replicating (with 
any applicable updates) when importing a newer version - you would also 
need to check for any other local changes not mentioned in README.
