The effect of your patch is merely that Emacs users on Solaris or NetBSD,
in a French locale (or one of many other locales) will get an AM/PM
string attached to their date+time display. Something which is a no-go
in such locales, because it goes against the cultural conventions.

Yes it's an annoyance, but only on uncommon platforms and those platforms' users must be used to other utilities misbehaving in the same annoying way.

Thanks for improving nstrftime so that it doesn't need Gnulib's locking code. However that brings us to the next issue, which is that Emacs has its own hacky way of doing locales. I'm a bit rusty on that and so will have to think about its interaction with Gnulib nstrftime on Solaris and NetBSD. In the meantime I installed the attached further patch to bleeding-edge Emacs to work around this low-priority issue.

(I misspelled "finesse" in the commit message, sorry.)
