We're being very careful here. I can see how glibc did try to 
build them. They appear in /usr/lib/locale with three files each.

Yep, even I could manage that (He says hopefully).

Currently I'm running on en_IE at euro freshly compiled as root while you
weren't looking two e-mails ago. It seems OK apart from the currency
error. It'll probably even be better when it can find the charset :-P.
That's me fixed.

Of course I could forsee a need for Romanian, Russian, Chinese, Tagalog,
French & Portugese among my immediate acquaintances. We also have many
German speakers. Maybe I'd better think twice about this one.
