[Aargh!  Was that me?  Sorry!]

Sure.  Just change so that NLS is switched on by default,
and the regression tester will test it automatically.  I'm happy to
add any tools to the regression tester's environment that it might need.

... or add 'make stamp-check-po' to 'make check'.

I don't want to have the regression tester differ greatly from the
normal 'configure && make && make check' build process, because
otherwise it'll be testing something different to what most people
