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.
