Yes, the first build is not done in a unicode (like en_US.utf-8).
Actually the locale is not set at all.

In fact I can get the very same error in my pbuilder on my notebook. I saw
somewhere (I don't really recall where/when) that something without any locale
setted picked up something near the standard C locale in situation like that.

The second build (which your package didn't even reached) is run with
LC_ALL=fr_CH.UTF-8 instead.

Thats, eh, wow!
Really, no need for such an high severity. We somehow builds stuff in weird
environments, not (yet) required by policy or the like.
Though, your call, and we're happy maintainers care about our project!
