	yes.  we need a netbsd-standard way to disable linkage of multilingual
	locale library
	- 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/
