Individual packages install their own locale files - if you look further
down the directories, you'll find lots of package-specific files. For

$ ls /usr/share/locale/it/LC_MESSAGES

So, if you're missing the ones for X, it'll be some kind of build
problem with X. They're present on my system without any special
configuration, so I'd assume something about your build process has
disabled them.
