I doubt it. The only question remaining is:

* Which locale directories should be created and how is that determined?

I'm inclined to say that it should be:

for locale in aa af am an ar as az be bg bn bo br bs ca cs cy da de dv
dz el en eo es et eu \
fa fi fo fr fy ga gd gl gu gv ha he hi hr ht hu hy id ig ik is it iu iw

  mkdir %{buildroot}%{_mandir}/$locale
  for a in `seq 0 3`; do
     mkdir %{buildroot}%{_mandir}/$locale/man$ap
  for b in `seq 0 9`; do
     mkdir %{buildroot}%{_mandir}/$locale/man$b

That covers everything glibc currently knows about.
