Partially. If the environment variable LINGUAS is set when configure is
run then the it selects the translations for the programs. The
translations for the man pages and the guide are not affected by that
variable though because the corresponding configure checks haven't been
coded to take it into account.

What you can do after configure is overwriting the corresponding
Makefile variables. The variables in question are: TRANSLATIONS
TRANSLATIONS_POS for the translation of the tools, MANPAGES_TRANSLATIONS

However, the proper way would be to change the configure checks to
respect LINGUAS.


If Darl McBride was in charge, he'd probably make marriage
unconstitutional too, since clearly it de-emphasizes the commercial
nature of normal human interaction, and probably is a major impediment
to the commercial growth of prostitution. - Linus Torvalds
