Some of the language definition files (e.g. german, which I guess Eduard
was using) just set ->locale to the language code.  It does seem like
these are in error.  Also, if we can make LANG come out right, I don't
think there is any need to set LANGUAGE at all.  So, to summarise, I
think we should:

 - revert Eduard's patch to util.c and go back to setting LANG from
 - inspect, and fix if necessary, the locale values in all the 
   .src files so that they include country codes
 - turn on the code protected by USE_LANGUAGE_VARIANTS in boxes.c, but
   not the bit in main_menu.c

Anybody disagree with that?
