Thanks for the report and the analysis.  I didn't think of such
systems only having C, fr_FR at euro, fr_FR.iso885915 at euro, and POSIX
locales for using uim-xim...  In such systems, only direct IM is

Anyway, I think adding @euro to locale_map is right way, because
setlocale(LC_CTYPE, "fr_FR") or setlocale(LC_CTYPE,
"fr_FR.ISO8859-15") will fail on this system, but setlocale(LC_CTYPE,
"fr_FR at euro") or setlocale(LC_CTYPE, "fr_FR.ISO859-15 at euro") work as a
French locale.

I'll commit the change later.
