Sigh. Long live MacOS X.  MacOS directory handling is severely broken
for large directories (It came to a screeching halt I tried store my
inbox with 6000-mails in a single maildir on a mac mini).

The new build uses a shared directory for all languages, so you don't
build each file separately for each language. That directory has some
8500 files.

I guess I have to use some deeper subdirectory levels to make it
usable on MacOS.
