Are you interested in receiving these fixes? If so, how would you like me to 
submit them? Create a patch file or send the modified source files (small) in 
their entirety.

A patch file would be better. 'git format-patch' generates a good format; the attached patch uses that format.

system.h says this:

   It's possible for two distinct files on a buggy file system to have
   the same attributes, but it's not worth slowing down all
   implementations (or complicating the configuration) to cater to
   these rare cases in buggy implementations.

Please keep that in mind when proposing a patch.

I'm curious how gnulib-tests/setlocale.c is supposed to get compiled, as the 
code relies on a localename.h file that is neither included nor generated, and 
I couldn't find any documentation towards this file either

Thanks for reporting that. I installed the attached patch to work around the problem.
