Correct.  If you build from source you need to enable this option
because it is disabled by default.

Johannes, what you were told here is NOT correct.  The account hierarchies
have nothing to do with the tax reports.  The account hierarchies ALWAYS
follow your locale, but the Tax Reports only follow the locale ONLY IF
GnuCash was built to --enable-locale-specific-tax, which is NOT the
default configure option.

So it is NOT true that "your file hierarchy seems mixed up".  Nor is
it true that "In the normal case accounts/de_DE/acctchrt_skr04... should
open together with tax/us/txf-de_DE.scm" in the default case when
you build the code yourself.
