I think this is normal behavior of upstream library installation.
You could workaround like:

make install INSTALL="install -p"

After running install target without changing any code libintl.h in
declination folder installed with new time without changes
This is triggering compilation for other library who include libintl.h

Problem can be fixed by modifying installation command line in file gettext-runtime/intl/Makefile.in

$(INSTALL_DATA) libintl.h $(DESTDIR)$(includedir)/libintl.h; \
$(INSTALL_DATA) -p libintl.h $(DESTDIR)$(includedir)/libintl.h; \
