Check for en_US.UTF-8 during build process

I have a package that during the building does some checks for
en_US.UTF-8 compatibility.

I use pbuilder locally, but would like to use PPA later on.

The check fails as the en_US.UTF-8 isn't installed, adding locales to
the control file doesn't seem to work. When the build fails and I stay
in pbuilder, run "locale-gen en_US.UTF-8" and run the check again it

How do install the en_US.UTF-8 through the build process?
