Hm, yes.  I thought I had that installed.


1) I suppose that localepurge should be recommended by gnome-user-guide
2) I installed localepurge and reinstalled gnome-user-guide: localepurge
   said that it freed a lot of space under /usr/share/locale and
   /usr/share/man, but left the /usr/share/gnome/help tree untouched
