If you really want to reduce the disk footprint of your installation,
you want to check out %_install_langs to only install the locales you
really care about. Sadly, this is a very neglected feature of rpm, and
we don't really support this or expose it in any usable fashion...

Mandriva uses it by default. The big drawback to this is that, if you
install the system and _subsequently_ enable a locale, you don't get the
locale-specific files for that locale for any package that was installed
as part of the initial installation. Which is a bit of a bummer.

Right, this is what I meant by supporting this and making it usable...

Additionally rpm -Va will report missing files iirc
