 I remember lots of perl warnings about my locale, but I just ignore
them and the build doesn't usually hang.  I do wonder if your locale
is set correctly (I would expect to see something like iso-8859-1
for the legacy locale), but I doubt that this is the problem.

 When you say it just loops, what is it doing ?
