I don't think it's a good idea to suggest NMUing glibc to fix #788352.

yes, it is a workaround.

this bug has nothing to do with reproducible builds at all. This bug is about 
your package failing to build from source. Reproducibly ;-p

(It's just that this bug was found by us while looking for reproducibilty 
issues. And at the moment our test setup doesn't allow us to look at  
prettytable (easily) in this regard because by default our setup has locales-
all installed (for reasons not related to this bug) which causes prettytable 
failing to build.)

I don't understay why you would want to do this, it's not impossible to remove 
workarounds. I wouldn't like my package fail to build like this for months…
