yes. we need a netbsd-standard way to disable linkage of multilingual
- some binaries chokes with multilingual locale code (i.e. ld.elf_so)
- statically linked binary, and dislikes to pull in larger setlocale()
- dynamic linked library, but wants no multilingual locale code to be
1st one is important for me, other people raised 2 and 3.
also it looks to me that sh3 port do not have dlopen() at all,
and can cause compilation trouble in lib/libc/locale... maybe
some .if is necessary in lib/libc/locale/Makefile.inc.
