Well, it's not perfect but I'm a lot closer than I was.
Many thanks to Roman Pestka for his help.

I wasn't actually using `sysidcfg` for my install, I was entering config data
My `locale` (correct syntax for a profile keyword) setting was configured in
my profile but, try as I might, I couldn't seem to get it to work from there,
even though it is listed as a valid option.

Roman's advice was to incorporate it into a `sysidcfg` file, remembering here
that the correct syntax is `system_locale`.
It appears then that the system automatically sets the locale to the default
for that country, (ie: en_GB for Britain), and you have to manually update it
in /etc/default/init afterwards ....................... unless of course
someone else knows otherwise.

I'm happ(ier)y now though.

set the locale to the default (en_GB), restart the insatll and then modify
/etc/default/init when the process is complete, (to reset the locale to the
desired value).
