I just wanted to know what happens in a theoritcal case, if someone
builds the LC version but with a different lingua then C. IMHO in this
case, she would have trouble with latin1 chars. But a) this would
happen anyways and b) we use English as default in LC build, so don't
worry. single-locale floppies should still work afterwards.

Modconf does already come with recoded strings for .UTF-8 locale, and
they is shown almost correctly using "dialog". I just tried - it does
finaly work as expected.
Now, I am going to make modifications to make locales work in modconf
