Sorry to drop in like this, but how would I set that up?

# LC_CTYPE=nl_NL.UTF8@euro

for utf8 encoded characters and the euro? I don't want dutch error messages
or anything else set to the dutch language.

Where can I find more about the locale system in linux/glibc?

Erik.

PS: Do you know where to find information on building a system *without* locale
support?
