In the current CVS-tree htdig -v prints a warning if the selected locale is
not supported by the system.

You should look at the setlocale (3) man page for information where the
locale information files are stored on your system or write a small C
program like the following that tests the return code of the setlocale call.

---------- snipp! ----------
#include <locale.h>
#include <stdio.h>

main(int argc, char **argv)
  char *rc;
  if (argc != 2)
    printf("Usage: localetest locale\n");

  printf("Testing %s\n", argv[1]);
  rc= setlocale(LC_ALL, argv[1]);
  if (rc== NULL)
    printf("locale \"%s\" not supported!\n", argv[1]);
    printf("locale set to \"%s\".\n", rc);
