Summary and Info:

If the LC_ALL variable is not set to en_US.utf8 (that is, left at my default de_DE.utf8) makepkg -s will fail without error message for certain PKGBUILDs (such as yaourt-git and vlc-git from AUR):

==> Erstelle Paket [Creating package]...
-> Erstelle .PKGINFO-Datei [Generating .PKGINFO file]...
/usr/bin/makepkg: Zeile 99: printf: `D': Ungültiges Formatierungszeichen. [Line 99 … Invalid formatting symbol]
-> Füge [Adding] %

  • Field changed: Summary ([makepkg] fatal error if locale isn't set to en_US.utf8 → Makepkg gives fatal error if locale isn't set to en_US.utf8)
  • Field changed: Status (Unconfirmed → Assigned)
  • Field changed: Category (General → makepkg)
  • Task assigned to Allan McRae (Allan)
You've generalized here. It breaks for de_DE.utf8 only unless you've tested every other one of our 20+ translations.

True. Sorry about that.
