updatedb would probably be best rewritten.   I'm going to mark the updatedb-related bus as "Postponed" in order to consider them all in a batch, when I get around to the rewrite.

(Leslie P. Polzer did start on a rewrite some time back as part of the Summer of Code but there are some updatedb-related issues his changes don't resolve yet, I think)

updatedb.c is almost done.
I'm going to add gettext support as well.

It would be nice if updatedb could use gettext(1) to translate its output.  The conversion may be easier by rewriting updatedb in C than figuring out how to use gettext on portable shell code.
