This bug disappear when applying any of these changes:
 a) build on sid
 b) replace
      return uc($first) cmp uc($second)
      return $first cmp $second
    at the very end of langcmp (in template/debian/languages.wml)
 c) use C or iso-8859-1 locales

So it looks like a Perl 5.005 problem related with locales, which is
illustrated by the attached file (which displays Australien
Bulgarien Brasilien on klecker).
