 I can confirm c2hs fails like this with Serbian locale (sr_RS.UTF8) as
 well. I suppose c2hs fails to read unicode characters. To fix that I added
 a small wrapper script arount c2hs (just "LANG=C c2hs-bin $*") and moved
 the real c2hs to c2hs-bin. Maybe that could be included in c2hs as a quick
 fix until this is properly handled?

 Best regards & keep up the good work
