This is true for my Gentoo buildbots.  Once we've figured out the
best way to handle this, I'll fix that (install the other locales) for
my two.

When I run the C test program I get null as the final output of that
regardless of whether I use 'tr_TR' or 'tr_TR.utf8'.

This is with glibc-2.13-r2 (the r2 is Gentoo's mod number).

As someone pointed out on python-dev, if this isn't fixable then it should be an expected failure, not a skip.

One question is, is there any platform on which the turkish locale is installed where this test actually works?
