Hello Ivan,

Here is the test result. It seems that the problem is on FreeBSD
(6.2) . Because ö and ş are before then z in Turkish alphabet.

# cat a.c
#include <locale.h>

int main() {

        setlocale(LC_COLLATE, "tr_TR.ISO8859-9");
        printf("%d\n",strcoll("ö", "z"));
        printf("%d\n",strcoll("ü", "z"));
}
ftpfreebsd[~]# ./a
124
130
ftpfreebsd[~]# 

By the way,  LC_COLLATE is link to the  ../la_LN.US-ASCII/LC_COLLATE
in  /usr/share/locale/tr_TR.ISO8859-9 directory.  Does this mean that
LC_COLLATE is missing for tr_TR.ISO8859-9 ?

# ls -al /usr/share/locale/tr_TR.ISO8859-9/
total 14
drwxr-xr-x    2 root  wheel   512 Jul  9 15:32 .
drwxr-xr-x  157 root  wheel  4096 Dec  4  2006 ..
lrwxr-xr-x    1 root  wheel    28 Jul  9 15:32 LC_COLLATE -> 
../la_LN.US-ASCII/LC_COLLATE
lrwxr-xr-x    1 root  wheel    26 Jul  9 15:32 LC_CTYPE -> 
../la_LN.US-ASCII/LC_CTYPE

-r--r--r--    1 root  wheel   352 Jul  9 15:32 LC_TIME


and there is no file spesicific  to the tr_TR.ISO8859-9 in   
/usr/src/share/colldef/
