Ok.  I have had a quick play with the latest version available there.

It seems these are the lines you need to comment out:

# Fixes a bug in l10n.php where some guy decided there was no reason
# to load files which are required for their l10n functions if no
# language is defined in Wordpress.
require_once(ABSPATH . 'wp-includes/streams.php');
require_once(ABSPATH . 'wp-includes/gettext.php');

Looking back through the code history it looks like this issue was  
fixed in WordPress 2.1 - https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3157

However, the code itself does produce a lot of warnings when run with  
WP_DEBUG enabled it looks like someone needs to take ownership of it  
and bring it up-to-date.
