Yum speaks native languages

Yum now speaks native languages.

Localization has been on the Yum todo list for a long, so for i couple of weeks ago i started to make it happen.
Added the pieces of code and makefile magic to build the yum.pot and LANG.po files and adding a lot of _() translations wrappers around the strings to be translated in the yum source. (386 different messages at the moment)

Here is the result, Yum speak danish (Not eating danish, SPEAKING DANISH)

I also speak Norwegian by the way.
Now you ask yourself, how do i make yum speak my locale language.
Just go here and pick up yum.pot, rename it to LANG.po and start translating the strings using gtranslator,Kbabel or another translation editor.

When you have done the translation, then make a bugzilla report against yum in the Redhat Bugzilla
