Fluxbox error /usr/share/fluxbox/nls/en_GB/

I'm using fluxbox on Debian and have an error when I type the follwoing:
fbsetroot options...
I get the error:

Warning: Failed to open file(/usr/share/fluxbox/nls/en_GB/
for translation, using default messages.
In my filesystem, this doesn't exist, as shown by my ls below:
ls /usr/share/fluxbox/nls/
be_BY/ cs_CZ/ el_GR/ fr_FR/ ko_KR/ pl_PL/ ru_RU/ tr_TR/ 
bg_BG/ da_DK/ es_ES/ it_IT/ lv_LV/ pt_BR/ sl_SI/ uk_UA/ 
C/     de_DE/ et_EE/ ja_JP/ nl_NL/ pt_PT/ sv_SE/ vi_VN/
Does anybody know how I can fix this?

See if this helps;
you could try
mkdir /usr/share/fluxbox/nls/en_GB
ln -s /usr/share/fluxbox/nls/C/ /usr/share/fluxbox/nls/en_GB
If it doesn't help just remove it. I don't think the error hurts anything, I had it on debian but not gentoo or slackware

thanks for the reply, this is the sort of cheat I usually do, didn't think of doing this since I wasn't sure. done that and it seems to sort it, someone in the other thread suggested cp -R the C dir to the one required, which amounts to the same result.

Is there any way of actually installing the other international sets?
Where is the setting that tells fluxbox to look for this file?

maybe I can change it to just use the C/ dir also.
