It doesn't fail to install, it fails to install *properly* - ie it is
unable to setup the dummy locale information correctly (localedef
rejects some of the locale data) and as a result some of the tests
fail during the test suite execution.

I think the patch has been accidentally lost somewhere. I'll check the
latest source again, but I've been running unstable and have been
having to manually patch libc to do test suite runs (even late last
year and early this year). localedef on my laptop is behaving as if
the patch hasn't been applied (I have libc6 2.3.1-13 installed).
