when there is directives before a "copy" directive and after a LC_COLLATE
block, localedef misbehaves and isn't able to recurse more than one time.
Attached is a patch that fixes that.
Created attachment 1893 [details]
proposed fix against 2.6
ahem I made an error testing the patch, it does not work. But the bug is
You haven't shown any bug. All locale files which come with glibc work. I'll
close the bug unless you can show where the problem is.

yes there is a locale failing in upstream glibc, it's am_ET that reads :
% The ETHIOPIC script declaration must come first.
% Copy the template from ISO/IEC 14651
the "script <ETHIOPIC>" breaks it all. It affects many locales that also copy
am_ET (like eg gez_ER@abegede)
The am_ET locale is wrong. The new script must be defined after the copy. This
now works fine.
