A bit out of date!
I managed to remove allmost all the language dependant menu files,
and most of the port dependant message files - this removes a lot
of replicated work and problems with the translated versions getting
out of date.
So you only need to look at src/distrib/utils/sysinst/msg.*.en
To build add 'se' to the LANGUAGES list in the Makefile (arch or
Makefile.inc) and an file sysinstmsgs.se will be generated in $OBJ.
You can run '$OBJ/sysinst -D' to test it (in wheel but not root).
