Re: slink's dpkg

This patch will work around the problem.  There is some problem in
dpkg-dev's i18n routines apparently, but I don't know enough about
i18n to look for a real solution.

In my opinion, this is something we must fix for slink.  Having dpkg
segfault on all non-English setups is very bad.  Branden told me on
irc that he probably did have LANG set when it was crashing for him on
X upgrades.
