Simplify multilingual support by changing CRTDSPF and CRTPRTF to support new MSGCON parameter "Resolve MSGCON MsgID values at" *COMPILE (default) *RUNTIME (optional)

Multilingual support can be greatly simplified if IBM supports resolving MSGCON messages at *RUNTIME. Currently MSGCON messages are resolved at compile time only (not good). This is problematic because it locks-in compile time values to object whi...
