  The zh_TW.Big5 is still there, but is broken, as are other locales.
(e.g. Perl is complaining loudly about my en_CA locale.)  And lo and behold,
there is already a fresh bug report, available at:


It seems that the byte order in /usr/share/locale/zh_TW.Big5/LC_CTYPE
is wrong or something like that.  我的头痛了,要睡觉了。

  暂时解决办法∶安装 i18ndata 套件,自行编辑 locale data,范例指令如下,
随便「自由发挥」。  ^_^

	$ localedef -f BIG5_1984 -i zh_TW -u mnemonic.ds /tmp/zh_TW.Big5
	$ su - root
	# cd /usr/share/locale/zh_TW.Big5
	# cp /tmp/zh_TW.Big5/LC_CTYPE .
	# exit


	$ cd /usr/share/locale/zh_TW.Big5
	$ cmp -l LC_CTYPE.bad LC_CTYPE

  希望这个 locales 套件过一两天会有更正版本。
