I am missing the initial context so please forgive me if this is out of

I guess this problem is partly fixed with the update to 5.2.0, not in
the Ports tree yet (for sysutils/puppet5).  I just found a few more
problems, I will try to address them tomorrow before leaving to

There where a few problems:
  - The locales are installed in a weird location
    (/usr/local/share/locale would be more usual than
  - Some files should not be installed into this directory
    (/var/puppet/share/locales/config.yaml and
    /var/puppet/share/locales/puppet.pot as far as I understand).

  1. The locales directory itself has not the usual layout (e.g. no
     LC_MESSAGES subdirectory);
  2. The installed files are not the good ones (.po instead of .mo)
  3. I was not able to switch language by setting LC_ALL / LANG to
     Japanese (the only locale that is currently installed).

As I said in the beginning I found a few more problems, and points 2 and
3 seems to be fixed with some efforts.  I'll try to integrated this in
the puppet5 port in the GitHub repo!
