macOS needs to link to CoreFoundation for gettext to work. We reorder the autoconf tests so CoreFoundation is added to LIBS earlier and the -lintl test does not fail (which would exclude it from the final set of flags).

Btw. the whole test seems fishy: if compilation fails it does not mean -lintl is not needed, for this we would need to test a gettext function without -lintl. Basically two tests (with and without -lintl) are needed to properly diagnose the situation. The test in question had been written in 2009 as a fix for the bug report.

This may be an issue only with non-Framework builds (since Homebrew manages to build a framework-based Python on macOS without any special shenigans) but I had not tested it.
