All of my testing happens without any LANG or LC_CTYPE variables set (as
do builds on pointyhat).  It is strange though that these messages would
appear from a chroot, unless the locale files were built using the 6.X
format.  In any event, it would probably be a good idea to sanitize the
build locale to C.
