Now I remember.  It's that localedir is not passed down to the
subconfigures.  After using --localedir, here are the strings embedded
in the gcc binary:

$ strings i686-pc-mingw32-gcc-4.5.1.exe | grep locale
--prefix=/usr --exec-prefix=/usr --bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin
--libexecdir=/usr/lib --datadir=/usr/share --localstatedir=/var
--sysconfdir=/etc --datarootdir=/usr/share
--docdir=/usr/share/doc/mingw-gcc --build=i686-pc-cygwin
--host=i686-pc-cygwin --target=i686-pc-mingw32
--with-build-sysroot=/usr/i686-pc-mingw32/sys-root --disable-multilib
--disable-sjlj-exceptions --enable-lto
--enable-languages=c,c++,fortran,objc,obj-c++ --enable-libgomp
--enable-version-specific-runtime-libs --disable-win32-registry
--with-dwarf2 --localedir=/usr/i686-pc-mingw32/share/locale

So, you can see that the (top level) configure settings did specify
localedir, and got recorded.  But...the only other string with 'locale'
in it is "/usr/share/locale"


So that's not going to work, without upstream changes in the build, or
local patches.
