is that locale stuff only to make programs generate non-english messages?
i never used it. i want my computers to speak english.

speaking of it, what happens if i compile everything with --disable-nls?
do i still need gettext then? will i run into any problems?

well, i think there are many poeple who don't want native language support,
i.e. want only the english language.
