Considering that locales-all has an installed-size of 120 M,
I would not use the "simply" word for that.
IMHO. this is a bug in locales-all and that's where it should be fixed.
In the meantime, reproducibility would be achieved by adding
to the control file.
That would force the autobuilder to install the real locales package
in the Build-Depends field, even if locales-all has a Provides.
BTW: I asked about this issue very recently in debian-mentors:
If the apertium packages could use the C.UTF-8 locale, which is always
available, that would be probably the perfect solution.
