I've set my LINGUAS variable to EN NL and DE. This because, I am a dutch person, so I want to be able to run applications in dutch, but also spelling and the like in dutch. Since I was born and raised in Austria however, I want to be able to switch to german spelling/layout every now and then.
However I like my desktop to be english most of the time, and thus EN NL and DE in my linguas.
I've noticed that Neverwinter Nights or glest for example install themselves as German languages. I get that they don't find an NL version of the package and try the next best thing, however, why is EN being skipped? Shouldn't that be 'the' choice for the packages in question?
Either this isa little bug in the respective ebuilds or it's a more generic problem that can be/should be cought in lower level eclasses or what not.
The ebuilds lack paranormal skills, nothing that could be done here until Bug 44796 is fixed.

echo "games-strategy/glest -linguas_de" >> /etc/portage/package.use
echo "games-rpg/nwn -linguas_de" >> /etc/portage/package.use
should work w/ a decently recent portage version. Otherwise, only the first matching language pack will be installed for ebuilds that don't support multiple linguas.
