I guess it's just lack of knowledge, but I'm having problems with the
NetBSD-current locale system.  I just built perl (using the package
system (which is great, btw! :)) and whenever I run it, I get this:

jmarin@orava ~ %(45)perl
perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
        LC_ALL = (unset),
        LC_CTYPE = "iso_8859_1",
        LANG = "C"
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").

How should I set things up for ISO-8859-1 character set (8-bit chars)?

Thanks a bunch,
