If I will not complete the things in time, another patch should be applied.
The current version of dbootstrap loads /etc/messages.trm. And it's this file
that provide all messages. LANG variable (nor LC_MESSAGES) is not used as
there is no function that could be used: gettext calls are just replaced with
references into an array with translated strings!
So, to make the boot floppies use localized messages, it's necessary to put a
localized version of /etc/messages.trm.
