I have had bad luck with LINGUAS. I tried setting it to all the
languages I knew of --

LINGUAS="en_US af ar az bg bn br bs ca cs cy da de el en_GB eo es et eu fa fi fr fy ga gl he hi hr hu is it ja km ko lt lv mk mn ms nb nds nl nn pa pl pt pt_BR ro ru rw se sk sl sr sr@Latn ss sv ta tg tr uk uz zh_CN zh_TW"

out of curiousity, and mplayer, for one, picks something other than
"en_US" as the default -- all error messages come out like this --

If I remerge it with "LINGUAS=en_US", it shows this:

One merge of firefox beta picked some language other then en for its
messages, menus, etc.

What is LINGUAS supposed to do?

Tell portage which languages you want support for when building an
application. It does not set the default language for that application,
which is either handled by the locale environment variables or the
program's own settings.

LINGUAS is a system-wide setting, it does not make choices for individual
users, but it does control their range of choice.

If your VCR still flashes 12:00 - then Linux is not for you.

Well, nice theory :-) but mplayer emerge says this --

LOG: setup
For MPlayer's language support, the configuration will
use your LINGUAS variable from /etc/make.conf. If you have more
than one language enabled, then the first one in the list will
be used to output the messages, if a translation is available.
man pages will be created for all languages where translations
are also available.

and it certainly does not use the first one in the list.
