I've started the process of converting FreeBSD's locale databases
to the NetBSD format.  I just haven't had the time to finish.  I've
got a script that automates the conversion.  However, I'm not sure
that the FreeBSD's files are exactly correct.  This is based on
comparisons of locale information from GNU (libc), Open Solaris
(contributed), and Windows XP, along with various web searches for
"official" locale information.

I've also started work on a localedef(1) tool.  Again, not enough time
to complete.
