++ Or if that goes too far have it commented out but still in the file - so that users can just remove one character to implement it. This would need to be accompanied by instructions in Bugzilla so that the wranglers don't need to post them over and over again. Users should be able to work in their native languages on their own PCs (Gentoo is about choice) - the key is just to try to prevent these kinds of issues in the first place. We already have notes about attaching build.log - all we need to do is include the words "with LC_MESSAGES=C to ensure logs are in English" in the note. Rich
