I don't think the localedef format defined by POSIX is that useful.
CLDR alone certainly doesn't cover everything and the data is sometimes
a bit questionable as well. Either othersrc or the mailing list archives
should have a conversion script to extract the data we can deal with
from the CLDR archive. That leaves only the collation support. I haven't
looked at what the current iteration in FreeBSD does -- the older one
had enough issues to not be worth the trouble.
