Re: what to do about "error: cannot set LC ALL locale"?

I've noticed in my searches, that my install of mac os x 10.2.8 does
not have a program called 'locale'

in bash when I type $LANG I get in return:
bash: en_US: command not found

which seems to imply to my inexperienced eyes that $LANG is set to
en_US but after getting that info, something that doesn't exist on the
hard drive is being called. My guess is that it's possibly locale.

If OSX doesn't come with locale is it possible to download it? I've
not found any locale download sites via google or anything.
I did read that a few programs required one to use the flag
'--enable-locale' or something along those lines when ./configure'ing
them.

I sure am in the dark here. Anyone got a light?
