I'm not sure I understand what you mean with "expected behaviour".

In FreeBSD you need to include the character set in your locale string.
This is not a bug, but I believe by design. Whether this is conform to
somebodys "expectations" or not, I'm not sure. I don't think it is a
violation of any standards, however. But I might be mistaken.

To make some program work, that has a locale string hard coded, you might
need to make the symlink as described in my previous mail.
