Re: [XaraXtreme-dev] Re: build with non-latin LANG

Obviously error messages intended for the user should be localised but maybe error messages intended for developers (ERROR2s and other serious functional failure messages) should always be English?

It seems that the command date used in building in building svnversion.h is outputting the date in the current locale, whereas the C compiler is trying to compile it using the C locale. Forcing the LANG setting would
be a good option, not least because we'd (as anglophones) be able to
understand the produced dates :-).

Should we be forcing it for the entire build process, or just for
"date" (produced by buildresources.pl). I suppose we should allow for
localized error messages.
