New submission from Matthias Andree <matthias.andree at gmx.de>:

Building Mercurial from hg-stable fails with errors as shown below, this is 
openSUSE 11.1 with German locale:

$ locale
LANG=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=


A quick workaround for me is to

make clean              # needed to sweep out the shards in doc/
env LC_ALL=C make all   # succeeds


Failing log excerpt with German locale follows:

make -C doc

python gendoc.py > hg.1.gendoc.txt
Traceback (most recent call last):
