Intonation problem? Fifths to Standard Tuning

I found a Latin American guitar at a pawn shop, but it's tuned in FIFTHS! Apparently, they like violin tunings down south. If I do standard tuning, will the guitar need to be set-up for intonation? Or is string gauge more of a factor in intonation?

It's only a half step, it should be fine.
