A pristine install starts out with the active language.dat in  
texmf.gwtex. The first time that language.dat is adapted (e.g. by  
"texconfig --edit" or by the TeX i-Package's configure phase) it is  
copied to texmf.local.

In my answer to Rowland I misread texmf.gwtex for texmf.local as it  
is very rare that people have not run a configure on language.dat  
(and thus created the one in texmf.local)

There is no language.dat in the LaTeX Updater.
