Here's what I have in my /etc/locale.gen for nl_NL and en_US lines:

nl_NL ISO-8859-1
nl_NL.UTF-8 UTF-8

en_US ISO-8859-1
en_US.ISO-8859-15 ISO-8859-15
en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8

Here is mine:

en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8
nl_NL.UTF-8 UTF-8

So maybe that's why the normal latin{1,9} stuff isn't working?

I have performed a test: I also enabled the "narrow" nl_NL locale
and now I suddenly see accented letters!
I never use the latin1/latin9 loales (nl_NL or address@hidden), so I had 
them.  Strange that I need them?

It's just due to the way I designed the locale support. I had in mind that I'd be editing a mixture of files in the old locale encoding and in the new (that's one reason). Another reason is that for the short term there's the character-class support in vile which is only for 8-bit encodings (partly for efficiency, partly to do things in phases).

Now I'm working to fill in this hole (so we don't _need_ the narrow locale to be installed). There's enough data in the wide-locale at runtime that I can initialize the tables, etc.
