I'm not sure myself. You can grep for it in /usr/include/locale.h -
that is at least suggestive.
LC_MESSAGES appears in the 1997 and 2001 revisions of the Single Unix
Standard, so it should be fairly common. See respectively

Please work from CVS HEAD instead. There are instructions for this at

If you are interested in I18N projects, another worthwhile improvement
would be to add support for %n$s notation to diagnostic.c. See
details of how this is supposed to work.
I'll be happy to answer questions as you have them.
