:Hi all,
:first of all, sorry for all those who had trouble with a world in the
:last 24 hours. A temporary workaround for rebuilding libc and the
:more important tools like /bin/sh is to set LC_CTYPE to something
:different other than US-ASCII like "en_US.ISO8859-1". This forces
:the dynamic recreation and should be enough to get the tools working.

    You have to move the location of the locale files, it's as simple as
    that.  We should have done it right off the bat.  Just move them.
    I don't care what other OS's use for the 'standard' place.  Only the
    citrus code actually uses those files and we control the code so...

    Call it /usr/share/locale_citrus or something like that.
