It is a bugfeature: some want it some not. Ideally both English and the
current locale would be used for creating the manual, see enhancement
request: https://trac.osgeo.org/grass/ticket/846

Apparently winGRASS-daily was/is build in CZ locale and NLS active.
Before compilation, the locale settings should be set to English by
defining LANG and LC_MESSAGES variables. IMHO easy to fix
on Martin's server.
