I don't think is a real nigthmare, I think that compiling Glibc with:
# make localedata/install-locales (after "make install")
should be enough.
I did it on my LFS, and took about 30min to compile on an Athlon Xp 
2200. So, why not? 
Every distro today ships with almost all locales...

I posted a similar qestion some days ago, but i got no anwers :-(((
I repost my trouble, maybe...:

***
I changed my/etc/sysconfig/i18n to:

LANG="it_IT.ISO-8859-15"
SUPPORTED="it_IT.ISO-8859-15:it_IT at euro:it_IT.UTF-8:it_IT:it"
SYSFONT="latarcyrheb-sun16"

But when I start apps (e.g. xmms) by a xterm, I 've this message:
Gdk-WARNING **: locale not supported by C library
***
It works, but not as I'd like...
Bye
