Control: severity -1 important

Hello Chris Lamb.

The affected package builds fine on all official buildds, thus
adjusting the severity accordingly.

This seems to be a sorting issue and the upstream build scripts
already tries to set up environment to sort according to C locale, see

Please feel free to investigate why this does not work as intended
if building under different locales is important to you.
(And ofcourse preferrably get any changes needed merged via upstream.)
