It seems to work here - A few comments:

The reshuffle of configuration settings makes it fairly hard to find
stuff for existing users - I wonder if this is all worth it as these
things don't change very often.

The text used to be 'Enable locale/gettext/i18n support?', why the change?

This should go in a seperate commit, and have a comment entry like for
the other packages depending on toolchain config.
