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