In fact, it's probably simpler if we just pass --disable-nls to
everything since the localization just bloats /tools anyway. DIY has
been doing this for a long time by putting enable_nls=no in a
CONFIG_SITE file.

But, if people like the localization, then the sed you've suggested
sure looks easy. Oh yeah, it's probably needed in Ch. 6, too.
