i use a global DESTDIR=xy which works fine on most packages. but with 
some packages i have to specify 'make DESTDIR=xy install' as the global 
variable seems to be overwritten somewhere. after hours of searching i 
gave up to understand why this happens...

with gcc i tried to find out why the french langauge files are built. i 
set LANGUAGE=de and LINGUAS="de de_CH de_DE en en_GB" global in the 
profile. most packages do as expected, some just ignore it and build 
everything (--enable-nls) or nothing (--disable-nls), but gcc is very 
special by buildint as expected the local/de but adds the french 
language at least back until version 4.4. (i tried with de,it and got 
de,it plus fr)
