Good morning Michael,

I am not upset that the French manual (PDF) is available and as stated 
glad to see it.
What I was after was the way to *NOT include it in the build. But all I 
got was
reasons why it was there.

I usually compile the build at least once a day and sometime two or 
three times
and any resource that I don't need just makes the time for completion 
that much longer.

I found it myself and all is good.
