Just capturing more information.
Apparently every gcc-4.* has this same issue. gcc-3.4 does not.
I always thought that part of the joy of the way GNU did translations
was that, if it wasn't available, it would always fall back to the
strings written into the source code (typically English, though not
necessary). Though, admittedly, the last time I actually read the
docs on any of this stuff was probably over a decade ago, so things
have probably changed.
I guess this boils down to: is this a bug in gcc or a bug in my set up?
