You will get the error above on anything that requires perl when it is 

If you unset LANG that works or you can add the following to 
/etc/profile fix the error

export LC_ALL=C

So profile should look like this

cat > ${pkgdir}/etc/profile << "EOF"
# Begin /etc/profile

export LANG=<ll>_<CC>.<charmap><@modifiers>
export LC_ALL=C

# End /etc/profile
