 Just like Thomas I don't understand your point. The encoding used for
 wchar_t is a fixed implementation detail and does not rely on any user
 environment settings in NetBSD.
 You may use any of the encodings you list above for multibyte character
 sequences, but you will always get full 32bit unicode for wchar_t.
 At least on NetBSD.
