Look inside both the fr and the fr_FR folders. There should be a
folder LC_MESSAGES. Look inside that. Is there a file subversion.mo
inside both of them? I'm guessing there's only a subversion.mo inside
the fr_FR/LC_MESSAGES folder, which is why only that locale
designation works. You could copy fr_FR/LC_MESSAGES/subversion.mo to
fr/LC_MESSAGES/subversion.mo if you want the locale fr to work for
Subversion too.
