en_US.UTF-8 sounds good. Andreas can you verify it would work?

I like this idea very much. If Dejagnu can be taught to learn error
codes than everything will be much better, and all the tests that are
currently throwing uncaught exceptions can be suitably modified to XFAIL
on these hosts.

That was kind of my plan at the beginning, but I didn't do the last
step. Also, I got a bit enthralled by the verbose terminate handler. Can
you figure out how to do it?

There is no configure-time way to figure out if named locales are
working. This stuff is the closest:
