"recently JFCh tried to port FreeBSD's locale support into OpenBSD's libc. It provides collating according to LC_* environment, wide chars, etc, etc.This is pretty cool, I know some people are using other BSD systems because getting the correct characters and locale information is not in the base system. The project has no plans at this time to support changing the locale of the system due to the various difficulties it would incur in a variety of systems, but from time to time OpenBSD enthusists from around the world make some updates.
The diff is against CVS sources from jan.22 2003. All patches & binaries are located at http://www.benhur.prf.cuni.cz/wydobitki/openbsd/locale/ and has used it succesfully with national language sort in postgresql. The original work is mentioned in a mail to the tech@ list
