Let me put it the other way. Do you want to move the location of the locale
files everytime we change the format to please statically linked binaries?
For the dynamically linked programs it's not a program, we can do that
just by recompiling the lib with a different path. We can even build
a default compat path into the current libc, but that won't help old
static binaries.
