The locales package is not build-essential so packages using it during
the build need a build-depends on it.

For the same reason (not being build-essential), it is ok that it's
not pre-installed in pbuilder chroot, and in fact, usually it's not.
For example, it's not here:


If you can verify that installing the locales package fixes the error,
then it would be clearly a "missing build-depends: locales" bug.
