util-linux now uses the system libintl by default, and I manually
generate the defines.h and make_include files, assuming that all
requirements are installed.  (The built-in 'configure', which is not
autoconf, produces bogus results.)

AFAICS now, I'm down to the following:

agetty fsck.cramfs fsck.minix mkfs.bfs mkfs.cramfs mkfs mkfs.minix
mkswap sln

/bin and /usr/bin:
arch cal chkdupexe col colcrt colrm column ddate getopt hexdump isosize
