First time - no messing or errors. For me, that is positively scary! You
were right about the iso8859 and ISO-8859 thing. Now I can rename old 
locales, compile new ones, and install them

<bemused meditations>
The savants here will wonder why make install for the locales bombed
out. I am left wondering why. Why does such a logical sensible reliable
system as unix capable of reinventing itself, setting new standards,
coping with new technology and running the Internet tolerate these major
nightmares like locales, printing, email, etc. to continue. 

Thanks again Erika.
