I've looked around some more and I think I know what's going on.  The
problem appears to be that we started with /usr/share/calendar/<locale>
directories of the form de_DE.ISO_8859-1.  At some point symlinks were
created so you could also use de_DE.ISO8859-1.  With the rename of
these, we have a problems.  directories are created via mtree and it is
set up to complain, but not fail if it encounters a link when it expects
a directory (and rightly so).  The problem is that you end up with a set
of links like this:

lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel     16 Jun 10 10:06 hr_HR.ISO8859-2 -> hr_HR.ISO_8859-2
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel     15 Jun 21 01:58 hr_HR.ISO_8859-2 -> hr_HR.ISO8859-2

Then install barfs.  The solution is to delete de_DE.ISO8859-1 and
hr_HR.ISO8859-2.  This may deserve an UPDATING entry.
