LINGUASis being replaced by the
L10Nvariable. After a transition time for packages to be converted,

L10Nvariable in their
/etc/portage/make.confto be able to set locales for packages that are already converted.
LINGUASwill work for older, yet no converted packages. Example:
/etc/portage/make.conf- An example of /etc/portage/make.conf file
L10N="ru uk" LINGUAS="ru uk"
