>From Alexander Patrakov:

recently I tried to run LSB testsuite (li18nux2k-level1 part) and there were
test failures related to cpio (it corrupts filenames containing national
characters). Investigation shows that the lib/system.h in cpio source #defines
setlocale to nothing if the HAVE_SETLOCALE macro isn't defined. And it isn't
(there is a bug in the configure script).

To work around this problem, please adjust the instructions in the book. Please
insert the following command just before "make":

echo '#define HAVE_SETLOCALE 1' >>config.h

This would resolve cpio-related failures in the LSB testsuite.
