Bug#60255: lt locale not supported?

Package: locales
Severity: normal
Version: 2.1.3

Distribution: Debian woody
System: Linux 2.2.14 i686 unknown

i noticed there is a lack of support of Lithuanian locale. When
any perl programs, i get these warnings:

perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
        LANGUAGE = (unset),
        LC_ALL = (unset),
        LC_CTYPE = "lt_LT",
        LANG = "lt"
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").

This doesn't change when changing any values of LANG or LC_* variables.
However, everything looks correct:

[menesis@~]$ ls /usr/share/locale/lt*/*
/usr/share/locale/lt_LT/LC_COLLATE   /usr/share/locale/lt_LT/LC_NUMERIC
/usr/share/locale/lt_LT/LC_CTYPE     /usr/share/locale/lt_LT/LC_TIME

gnome-applets.mo  gnome-core.mo  gnome-libs.mo  gtk+.mo


and works quite good. Also, I get another warning when executing Gtk+

Gdk-WARNING **: locale not supported by C library

I can see Lithuanian messages for those who have been translated (by me
but if I set LC_ALL=lt_LT, i cannot see any words in Gtk programs if
contain Lithuanian-specific characters.

LANG=lt LC_CTYPE=lt_LT any-perl-program
LANG=lt LC_CTYPE=lt_LT any-gtk-program
