-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Additional info:
If I issue the following command then binutils compile without any problem:
LANG="en_US.UTF8" make

I don't use testing repos.

Steps to reproduce:
- extract binutils source to anywhere
- execute the configure script with or without any options
- issue make command with LANG="hu_HU.UTF8" locale

Maybe it is a sed bug.
This task depends upon

Related installed packages:
- core/sed 4.2.1-3 (base)
- core/binutils 2.21.1-1 (base)
- core/gcc 4.6.1-1 (base-devel)
- core/gcc-libs 4.6.1-1 (base)
- core/glibc 2.14-4 (base)
- core/make 3.82-3 (base-devel)

I was try rerun locale-gen without success.

Definitely not a binutils issues. Either a sed or glibc one.

Replicate with the attached (nearly) minimal testcase:
LANG="hu_HU.UTF-8" sed -f targmatch.sed < config.bfd

I can confirm this bug (tried to compile avr-binutils 2.17). LANG="en_EN.UTF-8" resolved it. I think I have this bug since I updated glibc to 2.14, but I'm not sure.

The bug just appears to be exposed by glibc-2.14. Valgrind shows me something strange goes on in memory usage with glibc-2.13 too.

Reported upstream with no response...
