	Right - the basic problem is that the git submodules support does not
fail hard when we fail to check that stuff out. Instead it prints an
anaemic warning of the form:

	"failed to checkout submodule baa"

	And continues on it's merry way - leaving a disaster error message for
the poor builder later ;-)

	IMHO we should fail early, hard, and with a message saying: "try
disabling translations" or somesuch ;-) but I havn't got to a patch for
that yet.
