Bug#282715: locale.alias contents do not match with typical LANG or LC_* values

Package: xlibs-data
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-8


I have been installing Sarge, and decided to go full utf8. But when

example en_GB.utf8) but Xlib does not (it wants things like

Some more inspection let me found that adding some extra lines to
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/locale.alias made it stop complaining. It
would be nice if this file included the values that you can get from
locale -a (the utf8 ones mapped to the UTF-8 that X has).
