Hello again.

The first thing I would like to do is adding sv_AX and sv_FI locales.
With that I don't mean translation files (sv_SE is good enough) but 
things like currency formatting.
When I run Gnucash in sv_AX amounts are formatted like this: "€5,082.82" 
but if I use sv_SE they are formatted correctly.
I suppose that Gnucash does not recognise sv_AX so it uses a fallback 
(en_US) locale.

How can this be done?
