Yes, I'm aware of that.

Huh? How is the second build supposed to be able to set the locale to
fr_CH without the locales package?

A .buildinfo file doesn't (and isn't meant to) list all installed
packages, only those that are actually needed for the build.

No, that is not the problem. If you look at


you can see that locales is in the Build-Depends list, but pbuilder
doesn't try to install it, so either there is something wrong with
the installed packages database (which would be a bug in our pbuilder
setup) or locales is installed but some of its files are somehow
inaccessible (which would also be a bug in our pbuilder setup).
