I _knew_ blindness was a possibility :) Here's something more useful:

hint> SPECFILE=/stage1/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/*/specs
hint> [....]

Not all of us live in the modern age :) Or the ix86 world, for that
matter. I use an i586-pc-linux-gnu and a powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu.
So maybe:


I get the impression Ryan's script supports NLS. I would be interested
in seeing that in the hint.

On a related note, can anyone give me a quick instructions for testing
basic NLS functionality? I'm a clueless American ;) so i don't know
what i'm talking about, but i'm thinking of something like
``LANG=fr ls --help'' or some such.
