[vox-tech] Generating the Klingon (tlh) locale?

So, I discovered Melissa has a copy of The Klingon Dictionary, so I
translated some of the most basic strings in Tux Paint to romanized
Klingon.  (e.g., everyone's favorite: "Qapla'")

I discovered that there's even an 'official' locale for Klingon, "tlh"
(it used to be "i-klingon", but that's been deprecated).
(FYI, "tlh" is for "tlhIngan HoL", which means "Klingon language")

Anyway, unfortunately, Debian's Testing branch seems to be sorely lacking
this locale, so 'gettext()' fails to let Tux Paint 'switch' to it.  (Do'Ha')

I was wondering if anyone here's familiar enough with locale creation to
help me generate it, because jIHtaHbogh naDev vISovbe' (I'm lost!)  ;^)

Thank you  (SoH tlho'),
