Seconded, however I would also like to have the gettext people in the
loop here, perhaps by building the localized manpages from English ones
and .po files (which will help a lot in keeping translations up to
date). Perhaps something like

man_MANS = foo.1
foo_1_LINGUAS = pt_BR

meaning "foo.1" is to be installed in $(mandir)/man1, translated to Brazilian
Portuguese using gettext and installed to $(mandir)/pt_BR/man1 and the
prepared German translation (whose filename needs to be determined yet)
is to be installed into $(mandir)/de/man1.

Bonus karma points will be awarded for supporting texinfo as well.
