Thanks, Valeriy, for the info, and for your gentle ways with the ignorant.
It indeed looks as if one can do without it, provided English messages are
acceptable. I did an "archie" for gencat, and could only find it for BSD
(except under nls for elm sources): doesn't come up under Linux. So this
does raise the question: what should Linux folks do if they want to use
the LOCALE possibilities of lout? (The makefile, by the way, does not seem
to refer to gencat).
