just to set LOCPATH.

Is it still necessary to ensure manually that the localedata subdirectory is
built in time, before tests relying on LOCPATH run?

If a directory contains tests using locales, my understanding is that its
Depend file should mention localedata to ensure that localedata comes
first in sysd-sorted.

I don't think this is possible for locale/ because that would introduce a cyclic dependency.

What I'm trying to say is that it might make sense to artificially introduce a barrier between building localedata/ and running the tests, if that's possible, so that it's no longer necessary to touch the Depend files.
