The problem is that the check is a sub-node of the variable node. In 
addition there is a simpler way to check the value of an environment 
variable. I also think that the pipe characters are incorrectly used.

I would check it this way:
<!-- code starts (watch for line wraps) -->
<variable name="PKG_LANG" value="en">
         <check type="host" condition="environment" value="USERLANG=^en$" />
<!-- code ends -->

See the change log for further descriptions and the extended host 
matching wiki page.
