dpkg segfaults installing locales

I have a problem. While updating, dpkg segfaults while configuring locales. The error message is:

/usr/sbin/locale-gen: line 41: 6634 Illegal instruction localedef -i $input -c -f $charset -A /etc/locale.alias $locale
dpkg: error processing locales (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 132
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Ack!  Something bad happened while installing packages.  Trying to recover:

then it tries again and eventually the whole machine freezes and I have to hard boot.

I've tried all the variations of install [aptitude, apt-get, dpkg]. I followed the instructions and ran dpkg --configure -a. I even forced the removal of locales using dpkg, then reinstalled by aptitude. It keeps doing this and I have no idea what to do now. With the "illegal instruction" I can only assume one of the variables isn't getting set.
