internationalization

most packages support the LINGUAS variable.

i've set LINGUAGS="de de_CH de_DE" and am quite happy with it. (i didn't 
find any package supporting de_CH or de_DE, but just to be prepared...)

the last days i was working on the 'broken' packages to have the 
unwanted languages not installed.

chapter5 is fine with --disable-nls just building english.
for chapter6 (and blfs) i prefer to have german for the users and 
english for root and me.

as i'd like to add these fixes to the book, i'd like to know what i have 
to do to get these information to the book.

shall we add another chapter just with hints how to fix this issue?
or would you prefer to have the patches/fixes with the packages?
or would you prefer just another hint-file?

btw: the packages affected are:

kbd
man
nettools (i know, not used any longer, but i've already fixed it before)
shadow
utillinux

links
wget
cups
