fr_FR.UTF-8: No such file or directory

Decided to post this on this list since I'd seen traffic about UTF-8
here and not on the other lists.
I'm building LFS-SVN using LiveCD-6.2-pre3. In Chapter 6.11 finished
installing glibc-2.3.6 with no problems--test suite, everything OK.
When I got to the install locales part, I copied and pasted the commands
into a script and ran it as root. Got the following message:
Cannot open locale definition file 'fr_FR.UTF-8': No such file or directory
The offending command from the list in Chapter 6.11 was:
localedef -i fr_FR.UTF-8 -f UTF-8 fr_FR
I ran it manually with the same results. I inspected the files in
localedata in the glibc build directory and the fr_FR.UTF-8 info was
indeed not there. In fact the only UTF-8 info in that directory was
I did a quick and cursory google and search of the hints and archives
and came up with nothing--it was a very brief search.
Not having this locale is not a problem for me since I don't need
it--unless it's going to cause something else to fail.
As another data point, I set LANG=en_US.ISO-8859-1 and KEYMAP=us when I
booted the LiveCd. I know nothing about locales and hope that in this
shotgun blast of info there is something useful.
I don't think that this affects the rest of my build so I am proceeding.
