I've confirmed that this worked; after installing the French language
pack, and "installing" Freeciv (into a subdirectory with the --prefix
argument to ./configure then "make install"), setting LANG to fr_FR.utf8
gave me a French-localised Freeciv.
That's slightly annoying, as it requires me to have root access and
install wodges of stuff on my system just to test a language, although
it does seem sufficient to install "Basic translations" and not any of
the other options for a language. (And indeed this in theory restricts
me to languages supported by Ubuntu, although that's unlikely to be much
of a restriction in practice.) Oh well.
Back to the original topic, I tried the S2_2 SDL client with a French
locale and the strings mentioned were translated there. I then tried
Italian and confirmed the strings weren't translated. Removing the
"fuzzy" tags and rebuilding/reinstalling, the strings were then
translated, bearing out Sini's theory.
