as you know, use C locale != stop using locale.
i don't know if it can be an actual problem for netbsd as we likely
have other code which assumes PCS compatibility between host and netbsd,
though. on the other hand, this code is intended to be portable than
the rest of libc because there's a plan to create a portable version of
citrus iconv library.
you'd be better to ask the author (tnozaki) to clarify the intention of
the code before simplifying it.
