Yep, however the question isn't really about _where_ the files
will be installed, but about how source files should be named...

If you want to install man1/foo.1, it/man/foo.1, and
es_AR/man/foo.1, then your package contains three different
`foo.1' files.  The question is how to tell Automake which file
corresponds to which language, so they eventually get installed
in the right place.

Suggestions so far are to put this information in the source
filename.  For instance teaching Automake to install
`pt_BR-foo.1' or `foo.1.pt_BR' as `pt_BR/man1/foo.1',
with the rewriting issues Josef pointed out.
