the user. The relation is the user.
We should imagine that a user that sets the LANG var to some-lang wants
to read manpages, documents and messages in that language.
And I also imagine that he would like to have a simple way to install
and configure all this things.

if it was so easy ...
I had to recompile the program (man in my case) enabling nls, and this
made all the message catalogs install in their places, but I didn't
succeed in getting the messages in german.  :-(
I wonder if also the libc should be compiled with nls enabled.

It also seems that libc 5.4.7-7 inhibits the normal man behaviour (it
doesn't found any more the translated man pages), although it could be
the usual memory bug inside man.
