Hi Josselin,
 i wasn't aware that most games had their locale in /usr/share/locale
as the only translated game i have (i.e. xmoto) has it in
/usr/share/games/locale . But after installing wesnoth i notice that
it puts it into /usr/share/locale as you say.

I was unable to find anything about locale and games in the debian
So my bugreport was more like a question.

That being said... /usr/share/intltool/Makefile.in.in doesn't act like
autotools and that still seems very weird to me.
i.e. I need to tell builders to overwrite localedir if they overwrite
datadir as autotools constructs localedir as datadir/locale and
/usr/share/intltool/Makefile.in.in with prefix/datadirname/locale .

Anyway, thanks a bunch for the clarifications!!
I'll modify my packaging files accordingly.

PS: This is a bit off topic, but do you know how i could make
localization work without having to install or modify Makefile.in.in?
I'm one of those who prefer not to add autogenerated files in the CVS
and have the builders call intltoolize to create them.
