This is a longstanding problem with Debian. I've never been inclined to
look into it further. There is some issue with the French ISO8859-1
locale files that doesn't exist on other Linux distributions such as

< fr_FR.ISO8859-1: Error Encoding U+00000080 to  [ "$'\200'" != "$'\302\200'" ]
... (124 similar errors)
< fr_FR.ISO8859-1: Error Encoding U+000000FD to  [ "$'\375'" != "ý" ]
< Failed 126 of 1378 Unicode tests

That seems wrong. If it failed 126 tests, then, at most, 1252 tests could have succeeded.

But that's not what the message means. It's `diff' output. The `<' lines
are what the test produced as output on your Debian system. The `>' lines
are the expected output.
