scons install also builds the message catalogs for
internationalization if NLS=1 is set (it is, by default). there is
also a target, "potupdate" (IIRC) that will do this explicitly, but
you can't install unless the catalogs are ready. there's no reason to
build them as part of a regular build if you're not installing.

nothing else additional should be being built by the "install" target,
and if it takes 2hrs on your machine, i have to wonder what is going
on ...
