correcting my last reply to you regarding locale.connf and $LANG.

/etc/locale.conf is what sets the $LANG parameter.

from the installation wiki:


"Set locale preferences in /etc/locale.conf and possibly $HOME/.config/locale.conf:

# echo LANG=your_locale > /etc/locale.conf"

So, if one has set $LANG via $HOME/.config/locale.conf ; the PKGBUILD would not be dong its job properly, correct? (assuming $HOME/.config/locale.conf and /etc/locale.conf do NOT match.)

Thus, I believe you are correct and checking $LANG might be more appropriate.  Does everyone agree?
