I just know this -- regression tests failed the same way with the 'nl'
non-locale RPM's as they did (and do) with the regular locale-enabled
RPM's. Collation was the same, regardless of the --enable-locale
setting. I got lots of 'bug' reports about the RPM's failing
regression, giving an unexpected sort order (see the archives -- the
best model thread's start post is:
I was pretty ignorant back then of some of these issues :-).
Apparently RedHat is _that_ broken in that respect (among others).
Thankfully some of RedHat's more egregious faults have been fixed in
