[vbox-dev] Building from SVN creates 2 users guides

It's simple actually after I found the little bugger.

Config.kmk has the following line:
# Enable any translations in OSE, even partial ones.

And this from the doc/manual/Makefile.kmk

IMHO Following the rest of the way VirtualBox does things this actually 
should not have been enabled by default but enabled upon request
by placing the proper line in your LocalConfig.kmk. Same way you do VNC, 

For now, I will add VBOX_WITH_DOCS_TRANSLATIONS :=  to my LocalConfig.kmk

As for a patch it is not needed.  The DEVs know what to do if they want 
to change the way this is. (just remove the 1)
