I just have access to whatever arm machines are available to developers,
but building on one of those would require getting all of the build
dependencies installed, and then (presumably) getting the built packages
installed to test the qbrew build.
However, the QT_QLOCALE_USES_FCVT macro still exists in the Qt4 source.
My understanding is that it would still be valid to use, so I can try
adding it in the next Qt4 upload and see what happens. With a little
luck it'll fix the problem.
