Ok, now I have begun to merge it.

There are four points:

  - switch HTML files with Accept-Language Header
    already done.

Your request is not done yet, but is easy to do.

  - switch output message with gettext()
    now working

  - how to integrate GNU gettext library
    this is one problem to solve, now I am using libintl.a already
    installed into system.
  - how to install
    depend on the mail below:

  is basically a good idea or make the following

  for lang in $langs
  if [ -d docs/lang ]; then
    install lang

  Samba Japanese Edition uses the latter in source/scrips/*.

I am not good at autoconf, so now I modified Makefile directly.
It is the last problem to merge:-)
