Andrea: so can you give me instructions on how i would be able to test this. If you could give
me a step by step guide to test this arabic version, i would be glad to help. I’m ready
at your service for this.

Kind regards,
Ahmad Alawsie

latest fixes, but it's important for us to check that we can build Arabic; and you can play
with it, even though the translation will still be incomplete. The next step is then incorporating
your fixes.

to the list of languages at the configure step. We haven't built Arabic for a long time, so
we totally need to do it to allow a native speaker to check how broken the current SDF file
is (it's probably still from 3.x, but it should work for the 4.1.5 build too; it will just
miss some strings, so there will be some parts in English).
