With the release of Ubuntu 12.04.3, Ubuntu has set an additional environment
variable which influenced the output language of gcov. I. e, in a German
installation of Ubuntu the variable 'LANGUAGE' is set to 'de:en'. This leads to
an German output of gcov, in particular 'Zweig 0 wurde genommen' instead of
the expected 'branch 0 taken'.
Up until Ubuntu 12.04.2 it suffices to set 'LANG' to 'C' to prevent
none-english output. But with Ubuntu 12.04.3 the environment variable LANGUAGE
is set to '<current language="">:en' which superimposed the setting of 'LANG=C'.
Attached you will find a patch to solve this problem. Apply the patch to the most current version of geninfo(commit: geninfo: fix --no-external not working with --initial (2013-08-02 07:29:20 +0000))
