What exactly do you want to achieve?  If I understand the code
correctly (in file ``), the two calls to `bindtextdomain`
happen before relocation files are read.[*] In other words, the
`LILYPOND_LOCALEDIR` environment variable is honoured but a
corresponding assignment in relocation files are ignored (for the
lilypond binary itself – child programs do get the updated environment

Maybe this approach should be changed?


[*] The first call uses the compile-time value `LOCALEDIR`, the second
    call shortly thereafter the `LILYPOND_LOCALDIR` environment
