Thanks, this is consistent with my suggestion from 2003-11-07. It will
also make it easier to package internationalized shell scripts.

Please turn this into

    --localedir=DIR        locale-dependent data [DATAROOTDIR/locale]

Rationale: It also contains the locale.alias file.

Please turn this into

@defvar localedir
@ovindex localedir
The directory for installing locale-dependent but architecture-independent
data, such as message catalogs.  This directory usually has a subdirectory
per locale.
@end defvar

Rationale: Make people aware that installing things directly into $localedir
is a bad idea.
