locale errors found & fixed

open mouth extract foot,.. 
When doing a complete reinstall of all involved packages,
I finally found out that I had a messed up locale directory. So
everything would work for me, but not for anyone else :(

So here's the problem: libc6 and libc5 use different magic numbers for
their locale files. These are defined in locale/localeinfo.h in the
libc source tree:
in libc5:
#define  LIMAGIC(category) (0x960316de ^ (category))
in libc6:
#define  LIMAGIC(category) (0x960617de ^ (category))
So of course it couldn't work. This is, however, very easy to fix.
I'll make a fixup release of the hamm libc5 packages and you should be
able to enjoy(?) all kind of messages in your native language.
