Yep. Now, i've a working NetBSD and my scanner is recognized. But i
don't still figure out how to configure locales. In FreeBSD and other
Unix, i used to type something like:

$ export LANG=fr_FR.ISO8859-1   (or LC_ALL instead of LANG)

then, commands like 'date' was in my mother tongue, some command
messages too (although the translations are sometimes funny ;-) )

It doesn't work with NetBSD. Should i therefore conclude that locale
support is still at the development stage ? If so, i'm ready to help.
