Description Carlos O'Donell 2016-02-25 01:10:49 UTC
In bug 14259 we rename localedir uses to complocaledir, and then wire up localedir per the GNU Coding standard requirement to control the install directory for message catalogs.  However, it leaves the original problem unsolved. How do you pick a different directory for the compiled locales?

We need to add a --complocaledir configure option that can change the location the configuration looks for compiled locales.
