OK, I'll update the book. It was very time consuming to find the error and fix
it because I ended up rebuilding the whole package several times. I've notified
upstream of the problem and the fix.
I can see why the problem was missed. In most cases the developer would already
have the locale in their system. It was only in a chroot environment where
locales are not installed does it show up.
