Realise that modconf does not work together with locales support (for
the simple reason that locales is not available on boot floppies). As
far as I know there are no clear rules for setting aliases to the xx_YY
locale strings, so do not expect your alias to be accepted everywhere.
This issue is controversial, see the thread about the alias for
english (american/englich/C/POSIX/computer-/debian-english) on d-devel.
