Thanks for installing NetBSD and trying this yourself!
However, you'll need a newer version of NetBSD to reproduce this problem.

I'm running NetBSD 7.99.19/amd64, but newlocale() was added already in
2013, so you can also try it in a NetBSD 7 release candidate.

A snapshot of that is available at
but they only last a couple of days, then you'll have to look in
for a newer one.

I think that is exactly the problem -- it shouldn't check
HAVE_NEWLOCALE to decide if it uses uselocale(), but HAVE_USELOCALE

Do you need more information or is this enough?
If not, please let me know what else.
