Matt, I'm sorry that I need to contact you again, but the build scripts seem
to be very fragile and you are one of the rare person with access to the host:

install -p -m 644 apt-howto*.html/*.html /org/www.debian.org/www/doc/manuals/apt-howto/
install: will not overwrite just-created `/org/www.debian.org/www/doc/manuals/apt-howto/ch-helpers.en-us.iso-8859-1.html' with `apt-howto.pt-br.html/ch-helpers.en-us.iso-8859-1.html'

The problem is that more than one file ch-helpers.en-us.iso-8859-1.html
exists. One can be found in apt-howto.el.html/ since Greek is not yet supported
and en-us.iso-8859-1 is used as fallback. But why exist other en-us.iso-8859-1
files such as for pt-br? I really cannot explain this (did you use a non GNU
make or an exotic shell?). These should be deleted.

Ah, probably 
echo $$lang | tr 'A-Z_' 'a-z-'
echo $$lang | perl -pe 's/(\w\w)-(\w\w)/"$$1_".uc($$2)/e'
failed in the Makefile (should create pt-br and pt_BR).

Matt, can you try
echo pt-br | tr 'A-Z_' 'a-z-'
echo pt-br | perl -pe 's/(\w\w)-(\w\w)/"$1_".uc($2)/e'

Now I see that manuals.sgml/faq/Makefile is locally modified. Why? What does
cvs diff -u show?

Maybe it's a good idea to delete the working copy completely and restart?
At least you should delete apt-howto.pt_BR.html/ and apt-howto.pt-br.html/.
One needs to decide what kind of locale style should be used, even thought
pt-br seems currently the prefered style.
