Re: unset LINGUAS

If the LINGUAS environment variable is set, does it cause gettext to "build"
only those languages in the variable, or build everything it has but fail
if all of the ones in LINGUAS aren't available.

And in a related note, if LINGUAS is unset, does it cause gettext to
"build" everything or just the default.

I could, of course, just try it out, but I'm too lazy right now. ;)
