Darn that eu_ES.ISO8859-1/LC_MESSAGES

Although I found a fix for my issue, I thought I would post my experience so
here it goes.
I've got a annoying problem here. Everytime I make the world (using the
instrctions at FreeBSD.org) I get Errcode 71s and Error Code 1s.
Error code 71 happens at
install: /usr/share/locale/eu_ES.ISO8859-1/LC_MESSAGES: No such file or
It first starts with /usr/src/share/msgdef
I then go in to the Makefile and remove the offending target of
I looked in /usr/share/locale and there isn't a (dir) for the above locale
but there is a link of that name that points to something else but I can't
CD in to it (It says it's not a directory) and it's right it's not a
directory. But it exists as a file (I'm thinking about deleting it next time
I rebuild the world to see if something kicks it back in to place but I'll
save that for later).
The processes I followed were
make kernel KERNCONF=MSMOUSE-IIVi
make installkernel KERNCONF=MSMOUSE-IIVi
edit offending Makefile by removing any reference to eu_ES.ISO8859-1
(usually at the top of the Makefile)
Note - I'm currently remaking after the first edit and I noticed in there a
message that said something like eu_ES.ISO8859-1 expected (dir) found link.
and repeat edit offending Makefile and make installworld until the errors go
editting /usr/src/share/numericcdef Makefile now. Bah, forget it I'm going
to rename the links to the eu_ES-thingy and see if it corrects itself.
renaming errant links
ran mergemaster -p
running make installworld
No errors. Yay!
Should I even submit a pr on this?
Seems I found the fix. Delete the darn links (or at least rename them to
something else just to test the theory, then delete if proved).
