Actually, the individual locales are not needed any longer.  
Investigating some odd test failures, I found this by accident, but it 
was right there in Greg's reference build:

Seems the following list of locales will be used if available:

de_DE ISO-8859-1
de_DE at euro ISO-8859-15
en_HK ISO-8859-1
en_PH ISO-8859-1
en_US ISO-8859-1
en_US.ISO-8859-1 ISO-8859-1
en_US.ISO-8859-15 ISO-8859-15
en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8
es_ES ISO-8859-1
es_MX ISO-8859-1
fr_FR ISO-8859-1
fr_FR at euro ISO-8859-15
is_IS UTF-8
it_IT ISO-8859-1
ja_JP.eucjp EUC-JP
se_NO.UTF-8 UTF-8
ta_IN UTF-8
zh_TW BIG5
