The language code in debian/langlist is needed if user is going to run
buildone.sh. If the code was missing when running the scripts,
buildone.sh reports missing language or some such error. I don't mean
to check the changed file in, just edit the local copy to get the
scripts to generate the necessary language files. I got only 22%
complete finnish translation, so I am not going to want you to build
finnish for ages yet.

The build requirements may well be available in some other document,
but it is frustrating to read a seemingly step-by-step guide for doing
something, and then discover when following the instructions to the
point that some steps are left out. I got the buildone.sh running
after doing those two additional things.

But it is OK for me to leave them out. After all, I already found out
they are needed and don't need that info anymore. If others stumble
upon the same problem, let them do their own work. :-)
