  libintl looks in whatever localedir arg you pass to the bindtextdomain
function at startup.  In GCC, that's LOCALEDIR which is correctly passed in
from $(localedir) in the Makefile.  So, it ought to work just fine.

  I just couldn't get frankenAda to build any more at 4.5.0, so I'm aiming at
fully cygwinising the language port.  However in 4.5.0-1 Ada will be
regressed, it'll take me until 4.5.0-2 to get it fixed up.

  Hence why I don't use that option in the Cygwin C++ ABI.  For us shared
linking is the default.
