Hello Thomas.  Thanks for the report.

I cannot reproduce this.  On my NetBSD 6.1.4 (a virtual machine
downloaded from, which doesn't have
uselocale either, it builds fine.

The lib/gltests/test-localename.c code should use the HAVE_NEWLOCALE
#define to check whether it should call uselocale or not, and on my
NetBSD system config.h correctly have this:

/* #undef HAVE_NEWLOCALE */

You will have to debug a bit more, or give me some way of reproducing
it.  Also, I'm currently in the process of releasing 1.31 so please try
that version before debugging anything.
