Actually, if a locale doesn't exist in the glibc, translations for that locale won't be used, so checking against /usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED seems to be the right thing to do. I'm not sure, though, that it is really a good idea to check PO files against supported locales, for "upstream" translations (ie non-debconf ones) with lintian. The only case where it's relevant to lintian, imho, is the case where the package is native (so "upstream" is Debian).
