Well, Alpha keyboards aren't really different from i386 keyboards
anywhere. Is there a method to express that without exchanging "i386"
with "i386 alpha" everywhere?

Well, if I change it in english.src, I get:

Hm, it seems one needs "en_IN UTF-8" or something in
/etc/locale.gen...  Can we avoid that? If not, we should give at least
a proper error message.

Then I get:

LC_CTYPE=en_IN.UTF-8 reduce-font /usr/src/unifont.bdf < all.utf > unifont-reduced.bdf
setlocale: en_IN.UTF-8

bogl_write_font failed
make[4]: *** [unifont-reduced.bgf] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory `/data/home/falk/debian/boot-floppies/boot-floppies/utilities/bogl'

Oh well. I think I'm not in the mood to trace this any further :-/
