Building current evolution with 'makepkg -cf' as normal user with group write access to build directory fails source configuration with the autoconf error:

* checking for intltool >= 0.35.5... ./configure: line 6531: intltool-update: command not found

This package was not installed at all in the system, and is not listed in the package's dependencies. Should most likely be added.
Installation of intltool-0.40.0-1 fixes this issue, package compiles and seemingly runs fine, even without intltool installed. namcap also does not complain about a missing intltool dependency, hence I assume a build dependency only.

By the way, namcap has some other complains that may or may not be relevant:
evolution E: Dependency detected and not included (gstreamer0.10) from files ['usr/lib/evolution/2.22/plugins/']
evolution W: Dependency included but already satisfied (gconf)
evolution W: File (.INSTALL) does not have the world readable bit set.

Steps to reproduce:

* remove 'intltool' package from build system
* attempt to build evolution package through standard procedure
