It worked by luck before because all the linux folks already had locale
files installed in the (poor, by any standard I know) location that
XFree86 was putting them.  I've got most of a patch to libX11 to
build/install locale files, but it needs to get completed and become
distcheckable.  I'm off in DRM-land again, so if anyone wants to grab
what I have and finish it off, I can send them my files.  For now a
symlink at $prefix/share/X11/locale to /usr/lib/X11/locale should work
just fine on linux.
