Thanks Matthew.  Great suggestions.  Yes, we did add the check to 
parsekey and I just ran everything through the check and fixed the 
remaining errors.

for i in `grep "^Name=" /usr/share/sword/locales.d/*.conf|cut -f2 
-d=|sort|uniq`; do ./parsekey jn.1.1 $i; done

I'm building with ICU so I only have UTF-8 locales exposed by my build. 
  Someone building without ICU should probably try this and see how we 
do with the non-UTF-8 locales.

Thanks for the suggestion.
