Yeah, the problem there is we need to display stuff that may be using
a charset that does match your locale.  We can't even easily translate
from a charset to a locale name, so setting the right option on
the command line wouldn't help (also, it would probably do the wrong
thing, now that I think about it).

Not sure we want to fix it for 1.6, but it looks like those things are
done via etc/mhn.defaults.sh (which uses mhn.find.sh).  It occurs to me
that Autoconf might do a better job here.
