Intersphinx-ing of int, list, float, ... should work with ":class:`int`" (list, float, ...).
Is this a problem in our markup or a bug in intersphinx? IIRC, you can use func, class, mod, method or what you want, all these roles look up objects in the same way.
Also, intersphinx-ing list methods, e.g. ":meth:`list.insert`", should work.
If this work within one documentation set (as I believe it does) but not with intersphinx, it’s an intersphinx bug which should be reported to the Sphinx bug tracker on bitbucket.
