[all] locales: "cannot map archive header: Invalid argument"

since it came up again rather recently and i experienced it again
yesterday and all occurences of the error were linked to people using the
freerunner (according to google, that is) ...
i reported it as a bug to debian
and it turns out to be caused by jiffs2, ie if the directory the locales
resp the archive were to be created in lives in a jiffs2 filesystem,
"jffs2 does not support mmap in write mode. This is not a bug of locales."
so, whoever stumbles over that issue in future -- either modify locale-gen
(it's a script) to call localedef with --no-archive or make the directory
live in a filesystem not affected.
i linked /usr/lib/loacle/ to a folder on the ext3 sd card.
