./configure --help

Because there is no #ifdef in Scheme.. and the original report
writers didn't think about locale-specific reports.

Also, the locale usually speaks about the language, not the country.
If I were in Germany I'd want the German taxes but I'd still want
GnuCash in English.  I dont think there's an en_DE locale, and even
if there were we'd have to make sure to pull the correct 'tax report'
in.   That work was never done.

As this is the devel list...   Patches Welcome!

Not sure exactly what "problem/bug" you're referring to..  You've
complained about a number of issues over the past couple weeks.
