I see no reason why Parrot would be looking for that directory.   We do look for an /opt/local so we can find libraries from MacPorts.

This looks like a bad copy of /opt/local/lib/libintl.dylib, not something from Parrot.  (Note the "referenced from" part.)  I'm guessing something went strange in MacPorts?
