that's what I was getting at. I cannot reproduce here, but I thought after
checking google that LC_ALL value might be relevant.

I was focussing more on the error rather than the locale itself i.e.
"LC_TIME: unknown character in field abday".

In short, dunno :-(

But I'm always suspicious where folks have muliple problems that other folks
seem not to have. It suggests some sort of non-standard installation steps
or deviation from the book's instructions or some other weirdness.
