I'm pleased to report that the daily binutils snapshots appear to be
back on line on in private/gas.  The snapshot machine
died, followed by the usual series of problems and confusions getting
everything back in working order.

There is a significant change since the last snapshot.  Tom Tromey,
with some help from Nick Clifton, has converted the binutils sources
to use gettext style internationalization for all messages.  This
means that it will now be possible for people to write translations
for these messages, which basically means that it will now be possible
for the binutils to start reporting error messages in the user's
native language.

I'm not very up on this translation stuff myself.  If you're
interested in looking into it, you should probably start by picking up
the gettext package, available via FTP from

Also worth mentioning is that I've written some BFD internals
documentation in bfd/doc/bfdint.texi.  It's intended to help people
who want to hack on BFD.  I would be happy to receive any feedback on
this document.
