Description: The dnsmasq manpage section INTERNATIONALISATION is explicit about the use of installation targets. I have extracted the relevant sentences below:

Dnsmasq can be compiled to support internationalisation. To do this, the make targets "all-i18n" and "install-i18n" should be used instead of the standard targets "all" and "install".

The PKGBUILD for dnsmasq has the following install section:

make \
COPTS="$_build_copts" \
PREFIX=/usr \
BINDIR=/usr/bin \
DESTDIR="$pkgdir" \
install install-i18n

Note how the install target is included as well as the install-i18n target.This appears to conflict with the guidance given by the author.

Additional info:
* dnsmasq-2.86-2
* - Referenced manpage
