The printf(3) family does not support the ' flag character, specified
by SUSv2 as:
             The integer portion of the result of a decimal conversion (%i,     
             %d, %u, %f, %g or %G) will be formatted with thousands' grouping   
             characters. For other conversions the behaviour is undefined.      
             The non-monetary grouping character is used.                       

Additionally, %F (which does not appear in SUSv2)
should also be supported by this flag character.
Write a C program using 
	printf("%'f", 1234567.89);
or take a look at pkgsrc/net/dctc.

Do we even have enough locale support for this yet?
