Many moons ago, the Debian glibc packages were changed so that support
is only added for the locales that you explicity enable. I think the
file/command that you want to look into is called locale-gen or some
such. I'm afraid I can not give you any more specific hints, since I
do not have access to a recent debian system at the moment.
