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.
