Yes, but 98% of them, like - peple who download gimp for windows, or 
Linux distribution users,  fetch GIMP from a unified binary source 
(either the gimp-windows binaries, or linux distribution binaries) , 
and these builds must be multilingual.

Your change would "benefit" the 2% whou buld gimp from source,a nd 
even that is dobutfull - I myself use it alternatibvely in English 
and Portuguese. 

So... it is actually easier if you simply erase the .mo s you donį¹« 
want at the end of the make step.
