R-beta: locale

To repeat, my problem was that the latest version of R broke my previously
effortless install. Now I get a list of warnings from perl

data                              text    html    latex
perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
        LC_ALL = (unset),
        LC_CTYPE = "iso-8859-1",
        LANG = (unset)
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").

I have looked at 
man locale
and it tells me to look in /usr/lib/locale for my locale settings
which doesn't exist on Slackware 3.4.0.

So I guess I have to install a file there?  But with what contents?
Maybe someone with a US keyboard setup can just mail me his locale

Maybe most of you have had no problems because you are using nonUS
keyboards etc already. I guess also that this is the first "international"
version of R.

Thanks for any help!!
