 I guessed :) However, it does not seem to make a difference.
 To double-check, I moved aside .../etc/mk.conf, removing all options
 that way. This time, it didn't know any more where my distfiles were.
 So I pruned the file instead, leaving only the options as put there by
 pkg_comp and removing all my own.
 Unfortunately... still...

 Can it be the presence of some other package which triggers this extra
 installation? I have quite many installed.
 Out of a sort of despair, I started looking inside, which
 appears to be the script that determines the installation. It always
 seems to make a list of locale file ('translations') around lines 64-69.
 It checks for their existence though, and they don't exist just after
 They appears to be generated at the start with "os.system('sh ./')".
 When I try it "manually", it seems to do that indeed.
 The languages appear to be listed in the BitTorrent files, they don't
 seem to come from the Python installation.
 So it escapes me what is suddenly different for me (and not for you) :-(
