Also, I think (but not tested) that 32 MB of RAM + 80 MB of swap is not
enough to build some locales (mostly UTF-8 locales). It is anyway very
slow. Maybe it could be a good idea to detect machines with very low RAM
and install locales-all instead on those machines. It takes more disk
space, but almost no RAM.
