RPM installation on a non en_US.UTF-8 machine.

Hi Gang,

   I created an RPM here in the United States.   Recently, this RPM failed when installed in both France and Germany where the locale was not en_US.UTF-8, which I guess is to be expected.

Is there a flag the user can set when doing rpm or yum install?
Or, does the user have to set their locale to en_US.UTF-8 before installation?
Or, is there something I can do during the creation of the RPM so that the RPM can be installed on non en_US.UTF-8 systems?

Or, is there something I'm suppose to know about RPM creation that I don't?  If so, what is it?
