Subject: Re: setlocale behavior with 'missing' locales

I'd just like to further note that as of 2.55, the GLib test suite now
fails for the same reason as Perl's (and libunistring, and coreutils,
and libidn, and git, ...): it tries to set LC_COLLATE to en_US, it
"succeeds", then it tries to collate and fails to get the expected result.

I'm not *quite* to the point where I am going to just LD_PRELOAD a stub
that makes setlocale always fail when running `abuild check`, but I'm
very close.
