Hi Zdenek,

I found that it is no so nice idea to put such small program as vlna
which serves for one (or two) language into binaries for everybody.
For that reason I put some years ago small scripts/programs into 
support/polish/ (including scripts which are similar to vlna and eg.
polish extension to makeindex).
Well, you can even find support/vlna* (rather old!), so please update it.
