Yes, as a BuildRequires. Then the repository version of intltool would
get pulled in.

No, Mach is actually doing exactly the right thing - pulling in the
packages that are required for the build according to the spec file and
nothing else.

Possibly there's some configure switch for gnome-blog that forces using
the system version of intltool and makes the build fail otherwise,
instead of falling back on the internal copy? For an RPM build something
like that makes it easier to track down missing BuildRequires and makes
sure that you're building against system libraries instead of private
copies. But once you have the BuildRequires there it's a no-op so i
don't think it's a big deal...
