As you can see it tries to generate the old belarusian locale for alternative spelling (@classic) though there is no such locale and it is just an old name of modern @alternative locale definition.

the @latin and @classic variants disappeared now, it's just be_BY.UTF-8.

May I ask... "WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING???" be_BY.UTF-8@latin SHOULD BE GENERATED!

Calm down, please. I mistyped, only @classic disappeared. @latin is there:

$ grep be_BY /usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED
be_BY.UTF-8 UTF-8
be_BY CP1251
be_BY@latin UTF-8
