Freeciv's built-in language, en_US, is not included as an option in the
"Choose Default Language" stage of the Windows installer.

(This came to light via a forum user
<http://forum.freeciv.org/f/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=120> who wants English Freeciv
on French Windows; they can use en_GB, but it would be good to offer en_US,
since it's there; I've tested it manually and it works.)

I can't fix this by just adding it to bootstrap/langnames.txt, because
win32/installer/create-freeciv-gtk2-nsi.sh checks for the existence of the
appropriate messages.mo before adding it, so of course it won't find one for

It could easily be minimally hardcoded in the list the same way 'auto' is,

(Cosmetically it might be nice if the previous "Choose Components" step
included a greyed-out "US English" entry, to indicate to users what the
built-in language is.)
