Bug#206784: locales: locale-gen doesn't actually seem to generate locales?

I'm unclear which program is producing the error. The most likely culprit is
"sed". So unsetting POSIXLY_CORRECT would only help as long sed maintains its
current non-standard behaviour. If you want to use these scripts on a machine
with a posix-compliant sed they will have a problem. Or if the sed maintainers
one day decide to switch to follow the standard.
