[vlc-devel] Ahh, the joys of config...

I decided to do an upgrade of my Cygwin environment, kill-and-fill to the
very latest available.
Gcc 3.4.4, aclocal 1.9, automake 1.9, etc.
Kill-and-fill of vlc-trunk from subversion
Download and unpack the latest contribs, the January 13 ones from
Try running my config_setup, which runs bootstrap and then the overall build

Of course, bootstrap fails.
It looks like the problem occurs at:
                   configure.ac:5163: required file `intl/Makefile.in' not
                   Makefile.am:15: required directory ./intl does not exist
There is indeed no intl directory in vlc-trunk
Any ideas?
