There are an awful lot that could not realistically be used. Has the
possibility of a whitelist of fully included languages been
considered? It seems like every spec has a different list of
problematic languages that have to be cleaned up, but across the
distro there isn't a lot of consistency here.

It didn't fail to build, the resulting rpm fails to install with a
dependency error on a tl_LK language directory. (TH 64)
