On the 'Locale Related Issues' page in BLFS it opens with:

"This page contains information about locale related problems and
issues. In this paragraph you'll find a generic overview of things
that can come up when configuring your system for various locales.
The previous sentence and the remainder of this paragraph must
still be revised/completed."

I think adding some of Jeremy's comments above (chiefly: multibyte
locale support in LFS/BLFS is new and not fully tested for each
package) would be a perfect compliment to add into that opening
paragraph (and remove the note saying it needs to be fixed).

The "check the Wiki" part Jeremy mentions is already on the Locale
related issues page, in the very next paragraph after the one shown
above.
