This makes the tests not run on MacOS X, because "locale -a" shows the
locale listings with UTF-8, not utf8 There seems to be no uniformity
here in the mechanics of how locale(1) works; see the differing output
between different operating systems for "locale LC_CTYPE".  I would
personally argue that the Linux implementation seems to be wrong; locale
-m everywhere seems to show a character set of UTF-8 (the character set
that is in the MIME registry).

I think the only true solution here is to create a test program.  I
cooked up a simple something that I've attached below that seems to do
the job, but it will probably need to be adapted a bit.  Given that this
is a bit more complicated than expected, I do not believe it should be
in 1.6.
