I got query002, query005, and sync1100 to break under zh_CN.utf8. This
is due to PACMAN_OUTPUT usage; ideally we should find ways to do these
tests without that fragile rule. I'm surprised more don't break.
ldconfig isn't one that breaks (because it checks --debug untranslated
outout), but wouldn't it be better to actually look for a file that
ldconfig would spit out if we engineer the test to be a bit more
realistic? And then follow some similar pattern for as many of these
The three that don't pass above do look like we need to force the
locale, however, so maybe this is the best approach.
