Hi Gerd

Yes, I'd be happy to accept this.

The problem with having suffixes wasn't that "the user must know them
when searching for roads". It was that, at least for my eTrex, there is
just a single entry in the STREET part of the search for all suffix
variants, and then, after selecting that, all address in all variants
are given in the result list.

I've included Dave's additions for mapping some Africa countries to
en_gb in an updated patch.
