Sorry, I overlooked something and lead everyone down the wrong path.

Kreyol *is* included in 10.1.3 (and in our development builds), just
the particular command you are using is broken (a Sugar bug, also
present today, http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/10681)

The 2 workarounds are:

1. Set the language inside the sugar control panel GUI (the GUI works,
the command line interface is broken)

2. Adjust your script so that instead of calling sugar-control-panel,
it just writes a file at  /home/olpc/.i18n with these contents:

In script terms this is:
  cat <<EOF > /home/olpc/.i18n

Apologies & hope this helps!
