Short Version:

	mblen (3) broken on NetBSD 1.0 ?

Long Version:

The following code

	#include <stdlib.h>
	#include <stdio.h>
	   printf("mblen(\"X\", MB_CUR_MAX) = %d\n", mblen("X", MB_CUR_MAX));

Produces this result on NetBSD,

	mblen("X", MB_CUR_MAX) = -1

But produces this result on Ultrix, Alpha OSF/1, Sun4-413,  and HP-UX.

	mblen("X", MB_CUR_MAX) = 1

The routine mblen is a part of the ANSI X3.159-1989 C Programming Language
