 As far as I can see, it is the i18npool library that dlopens localedata_en 
(i18npool/source/localedata/localedata.cxx), so I think the best way to 
express this dependency is to make i18npool depend on localedata_en (and 
localedata_es, localedata_euro and localedata_others). While this is not 100% 
technically correct, as it is only a runtime dependency and not a build 
dependency, there's no cycle and it should make sure that anything that does 
or will need localedata_en will have it ready.
