Thanks for a good tip. In digging around a bit, especially in the
doc file for the lib (duh...), I found out a couple of bits, as in
some info about locale. Well, I downloaded a locale set (apparently
the rpm did NOT include this) and installed it. After exporting the
language this time, the perl errors disappeared. Have to check those
rpm's more carefully before using them from now on. Well, anyhow, I
got to read up a lot on locale...
