What Operating System are you using or referring to?
'setlocale' is not a binary that exists on Mac OS X 10.2.8 nor Fedora
Core 2 Linux.
I had to have my locale set up this way ( LANG=en_US ) in order to get
earlier (0.17 - 0.37) subversion releases to work on the Mac and Linux
workstations deployed in our company.
