This is a proposal to set minimum supported intltool version to 0.35.0 (or higher, like 0.40.0) and stop supporting AC_PROG_INTLTOOL in favour of IT_PROG_INTLTOOL.
A warning would get printed by xdt-autogen just like it's printing a warning now for AC_PROG_LIBTOOL vs. LT_INIT.

Patch to deprecate AC_PROG_INTLTOOL.
Debian Stable is at 0.41.1
Gentoo Stable is at 0.50.2
ArchLinux is at 0.50.2
Fixed in master. Note that I've moved the check for AC_PROG_INTLTOOL to the top level of xdt-autogen, similar to the check for AC_PROG_LIBTOOL.

Display warning if AC_PROG_INTLTOOL is used (bug #8930)
Similar to AC_PROG_LIBTOOL, which has been replaced with LT_PREREQ
and LT_INIT, AC_PROG_INTLTOOL has been replaced with IT_PROG_INTLTOOL.
This commit makes xdt-autogen recommend intltool >= 0.35.0 and displays
a warning if AC_PROG_INTLTOOL is still being used in a configure script

Closing as this has already been pushed to master and will be included in the next release. Thanks for the patch.
