Just playing the devil's advocate: there's something to be said for that "now
configure the package with the usual /usr prefix". Would be a good excersise
for people to get used to memorizing these things, will make life easier down

I wasn't going to stuff the book full with tidbits. If we just explain how at
least to install the files needed, we did our job by providing a way to
install that. The rest (ie: actually configuring locales) is up to yourself.
There are hints about that issue but it'd be a shame if we leave it out and
somebody would have to go install Glibc for a third time because the first
two times there were no locales mentioned and installed.
