    locales: Add 66 "@euro" symlinks, and UTF8 alias
    While not documented, it appears that modifiers work.  The only widely
    used modifier is "@euro" which is an alias for ISO 8859-15 coded which
    contains the Euro currently along with 7 other new symbols as compared
    to ISO 8859-1.  For all 33 localization sets that use la_LN.ISO8859-15
    for LC_CTYPE, I'm creating an @euro and .ISO-8859-15 at euro symlink to
    them.  These are still found on Linux and the .ISO-8859* extension is
    the chosen linux format (this is unfortanately not standardized thus
    BSD and Linux differ).  Thus any use of @euro will probably also refer
    to the Linux format and that's why I chose it.
    For the same reason, .UTF8 versions (Linux) are being symlinked to
    DragonFly's .UTF-8 versions.  Symlinks are cheap.
