NLS or gettext should allow three options to a person, 1) the system-wide
language, LOCALE, 2) the GNU locale (which anyone, given enough disk space,
etc. can set up on their own, and 3) the English defaults hardcoded in Lynx.
What more is necessary?  (I have not gotten an answer as to how gettext is
going to affect ports other than un*x, e.g., DOS, Win32, Mac, OS/2, VMS.)
