Comment (by alexander at linuxfromscratch.org):

 A "for" loop doesn't work here: the second argument of the script changes
 with the country.

 As for the upstream of Shadow working with Debian vs RedHat convention for
 manual page encoding: Shadow <= 4.0.13 did use the Debian convention.
 Research of their mailing list archive is required to find out why they
 changed their minds. I guess this has to do with the fact that Debian-
 style manual pages are not easy to edit on UTF-8 systems, and many people
 think that UTF-8 is the only future.
