Strange... I don't have this man page. However I have the locale(7) man page that describe the programmer point of view. Have a look at it.

Yes *hum* sorry... I'll *try* to calm down a bit :)

Well, I'm not a gettext-expert, but accordingly to others packages, all the .po files refeers to the same package defined by the configure script.

This gave me an (ugly) idea:
What about *two* packages? One will be hypermail itself, and the other will only be a 'string-server' which will give to hypermail the HTML strings? This can be done using a shared libairie containing the lang_fr() function...

*ugh* what an ugly idea... forget it :)
