Locale handling in Puppy2

In the Woof build system, international locales are all built-in. At first boot you are asked to choose a locale for your region, and this can also be done later from the 'Desktop' menu. Note, the script that is run to do this is /usr/sbin/chooselocale, and this works with or without X (using 'Xdialog' or 'dialog').

In the Woof-Puppy4 build I used PET package 'glibc_locales-2.7.pet', however this is not compatible with Puppy2. Puppy2 has a very old version of glibc, 2.3.5. So, I compiled glibc-2.3.5, just to get the locale stuff, and have created 'glibc_locales-2.3.5-pup2.pet'.

Note that all the special packages that I am creating for the Woof-Puppy2 will be hosted in 'pet_packages-2' directory on ibiblio.org.
