The problem is that both of the files:
... are symbolic links ... to each other.
The solution is to remove one symlink and replace it with a real file as
rm -f /usr/share/locale/no_NO.ISO8859-1/LC_TIME
Now /usr/share/locale/nb_NO.ISO8859-1/LC_TIME is a symbolic link and
/usr/share/locale/no_NO.ISO8859-1/LC_TIME is a real (albeot zero length)
And, yes, someone ought to fix this in CVS.
