Hmmm, this reminds me of a problem I have forgot to tell in detail:

e.g. if $LANGUAGE is picked [it is at the first priority in
guess_message_value() ], then if $LANGUAGE is set to something like
"de:fr:pt_BR", then the hint file "/usr/lib/mc/" is
searched, which obviously doesn't exist, and the fallback
"/usr/lib/mc/" will be used instead. In this case is it more
appropriate to search for "/usr/lib/mc/" and
"/usr/lib/mc/mc.hint.pt_BR" instead?
