Source: psychtoolbox-3
Severity: serious
Tags: patch upstream
Justification: FTBFS

Package psychtoolbox-3 is currently failing to build from source because file PsychSourceGL/Source/Common/Screen/SCREENDrawText.c includes xlocale.h, which has been removed from glibc >= 2.26.

The patch attached to this bug report fixes the problem. I will soon upload a fixed package to unstable, which will also fix Bug#890087.
