Summary: Select language(s) when install

Initial Comment:
While the number of translated languages is growing,
most users are using only a few languages.   With this
patch, the site admin can select his/her required
languages by an option to the configure script by
`--with-languages' and can considerably reduce the
install size.  This patch is for 2.2.0a0 (most recent
CVS as of writing) but also applicable to 2.1.6 except
that you may have to regenerate configure script by
invoing autoconf command.

Patch usage:
% cd mailman (src directory)
% patch -p0 < /path/to/install_selected_language.patch.txt

Configure usage:
% ./configure --with-languages="ja fr"  ... en+ja+fr
% ./configure --with-languages=""   ... all available
% ./configure ....  all available languages
% ./configure --with-languages="none" ... English only

Japanese and Korean codecs are no longer installed by
`make install' but availability is checked during the
configure run and urge to install if they are absent
when CJK languages are included in the language list.

I hope skilled developers can review this patch before
I check in to the CVS.

Oops, I forgot to check `Upload and Attach a File'. ;-)
