Correct, that does not help.  This setting only changes the User-Agent
string (it adds the country code to it) but not the Accept-Language
string that konqueror sends to the web server.

Here are my results for the Accept-Language string on

Iceweasel: de-de,de;q=0.8,en-us;q=0.5,en;q=0.3
Konqueror without setting in kio_httprc: de, en
Konqueror with setting in kio_httprc: de;q=1.0, en;q=0.5

So by default konqueror does not prefer German over English in a German
locale, and the web server is then free to send the document in either
