Not really. I can't reproduce the problem on Red Hat 6.1, and I don't have
access to a 6.2 system now to try it there. Just a thought, but maybe you
should check for things like trailing spaces on the locale definition line,
or any other superfluous characters that might throw off htdig. Otherwise,
I'm out of guesses. It certainly seems that the locale definitions are
correct on your system, so I can't imagine why htdig says it's unknown.
