A similar message is generate by application like gnorpm. Its not a perl specific problem. I only used it for demonstration

Is there anny chance to get a response
Comment 2 Marc Schmitt 2002-06-13 09:46:53 EDT

I also run into the problem, the solution is as follows:
You have to put the language you want to be the default also into the list of
langsupport. Meaning, in your case:

--default de_DE en_US de_DE

otherwhise it will install support for en_US only and set the default to de_DE,
which is not installed.
