Note that, in both these en_* locales, the date part of %c is the

Are there any en_* locales (or any other
locales that share the same language) which differ in that part?

[I have to reconfigure my system to spit out that information, it's
presently only generating a small subset of locales, might take a bit
longer than I thought, bah]

Attached please find dump of the raw info from my system.
("%a %d %b %Y" covers a lot and is quite likely still comprehensible by a lot of the others).

There are some locales that differ in that part despite being the
same language (following by visual inspection only, and n.b. just in case: this is only a list of the locales where the langauge is the same but the date part of the d_t_fmt different, this is not a list of locales differing from "%a %d %b %Y")

*Afar (aa):
- aa_DJ (Djibouti): "%a %d %b %Y"
- aa_ER (Eritrea):  "%A, %B %e, %Y"
- aa_ET (Ethiopia): "%A, %B %e, %Y"

*Arabic (ar):
mostly "%d %b, %Y", except:
- ar_IN (India): "%A %d %B %Y"
- ar_SA (Saudi Arabia): "%A %e %B %Y"
