The version of coreutils doesn't matter.
I'm using the CVS HEAD glibc.

That's because it's an old glibc. You can try using some other locale
that has variable sized-abmon, like possibly ar_JO, ar_LB, ar_SY, as_IN,
bn_BD, bn_IN, el_GR, fa_IR, ga_IE, hi_IN, ht_HT, hu_HU, mi_NZ, ml_IN,
sd_IN, ta_IN, te_IN, yi_US.

Yes, that's the old abmon from glibc, is has changed in HEAD.
