After further investigation: with the way we install, Puppet thinks it's
running in AIO mode and look for .mo files (binary files generated from
the .po files) but they are not built at any point.  I guess that
puppetlab's AIO packaging system produce them when creating the AIO
packages, but the install.rb script we are using does not.

By using msgfmt, I could manage to build them and have them working with
the ja locale, but install.rb installs a lot of junk, so some cleanup is

I'll investigate quickly if it is possible to not use install.rb at all
(it works well on Debian when installing puppet with `gem install
puppet` after all).  If it's possible, I'll get rid of install.rb for
the sake of simplicity, and if not, I'll tweak install.rb to do the
things we expect it to do.
