It should be: "guix package -i glibc-locales".
Because glibc-utf8-locales only contains the locales ("de_DE" "el_GR"
"en_US" "fr_FR" "tr_TR"). If I understand well.

To patch correctly, the locale should be guessed by the script and the
variant glibc-LOC-locales should be built on-the-fly and installed.
It is some work and I am not sure it will pay off. :-)
