Yes, the currently cvs translation is for pt_BR language, but I suggest 
that it should be set as pt_BR to leave pt_PT free for future inclusion
(not for me, but for another person). Really the pt_PT language has 
some different words than pt_BR language that confuses the user :-)

The translation is identical, but these are completely independent 
translations. For now (until appear a pt_PT translation made 
from someone), we could link pt_PT to pt_BR to add locale support 
for both languages (if possible).
