Follow-up Comment #1, bug #54479 (project gettext):

After reading the code I think the problem arises on line 855 of
`setlocale.c', where a call like `setlocale_unixlike (LC_ALL, "UTF-8")' will
fail on macOS. This is because

a) The call on line 645, which is `setlocale(LC_ALL, "UTF-8")', will fail (I
have tested this).
b) `setlocale_unixlike' makes an incorrect assumption about the format of the
`locale' string, so further attempts to recover will also fail.

Shall we perhaps change `setlocale_unixlike' to better handle this?
