Yes, yes, yes and yes. Hm. I lost count there.

Anyway, I cheat by explicitly building the "locale" project, which
converts the .po files into .mo files, then use a slightly modified
version of build/win32/make_dist.py to generate the package.

Yes, "locale" shoudl probably become a dependency of __ALL__.
