The biggest problem is that I don't know the format of the files. I could
easily send you mine from LinuxPPC if they're compatible across different
C libraries, or someone can probably give them to you from FreeBSD (but
if they're binary, then there could be endian issues).

Funny. I went to the Darwin mailing list archives (and saw your message
from Nov.) and Apple's search engine for the archives is ht://Dig. So
you'd think they'd care. ;-)

I'll poke around the Darwin code and check up on the varius Darwin/Linux
projects to see if they have any locale files. If not, I'll try sending
the LinuxPPC locale files, though I'm a bit hesitant since they might not
be compatible.
