As per the current Buildroot requirements, it shouldn't be needed. We
require one UTF-8 locale to be installed for uClibc to build its locale
data, but not specifically the en_US.UTF-8 locale or any other english
locale. If that has changed in uClibc, then we should adjust the
dependency in Buildroot accordingly, but it would be a bit annoying.

Best regards,

Thomas
