The locales using the EURO char _need_ to use the @euro variant.  The
reason is that the entry in /usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED without the
@euro modifier is not using the ISO-8859-15 charset.

So, to get a locale with the proper supported locale/charset
combination, one need to use the ll_CC@euro variant.
