[Buildroot] uClibc locale support

The selection of locale support in the buildroot toolchain menu seems
a little confused. The top-level option is:
Enable locale/gettext/i18n support? BR2_ENABLE_LOCALE
Which will actually enable locale support in uClibc. There's also an
independent option to enable wide character support:
Enable WCHAR support BR2_USE_WCHAR
But the uClibc config selects UCLIBC_HAS_WCHAR if UCLIBC_HAS_LOCALE.is
selected, so surely this option should not be independent?
Also the "Purge unwanted locales" option is dependent on
BR2_ENABLE_LOCALE but would, I believe, be useful with a non-uClibc
locale setup using e.g. iconv.
I'm also not sure why gettext is mention in the menu entry?
The attached patch attempts to fix these issues. Any comments would be
