Do they just not specify en-US with with-lang switch, or do they
actually totally strip en-US from the build?  It was my understanding
that en-US locale resources are always there even when you explicitly
disable it at build time (as Andras said).

FYI some code in Calc assumes the en-US is always there even when en-US
is not explicitly enabled.  For instance ODF import export convert all
function names to English because the ODF spec requires it.  The always
use English function name functionality works precisely because en-US
strings are always available regardless of locales.

So, is being able to build without totally having en-US resources that
