LC_MESSAGES on darwin

Hi Tom,

your latest patch breaks the darwin build since LC_MESSAGES is not
defined on darwin. 
I have an idea how to treat that but I'm totally confused.

I'd like to use HAVE_LC_MESSAGES.

In autoconf/header/aclocal there is a macro AM_LC_MESSAGES (seen in
gcc/gcc) where do I place what? 
I know silly question :-) 
As a result I expect something in auto-host.h. But where do I put
AM_LC_MESSAGES if I have to? Do I have to put the block from
gcc/gcc/aclocal.m4 (see below) in the one from java? 
Sorry I don't see the relation of conf/header/local.
How is the procedure to get this done?

A cheaper, maybe dirty way would be in

#if !defined LC_MESSAGES && !defined __LOCALE_H
# define LC_MESSAGES 1729

What do you think?
