Well, the chklocale code is designed around the assumption that there
*is* only one encoding for which a locale setting will work, with
C/POSIX being a special case.

I think we are talking a bit at cross-purposes here, because the Windows
equivalent to this notion seems to be "English_United Kingdom.1252"
whereas you seem to be defining locale as just "English_United Kingdom".
Does it not work the way you want if you make the installer pass locale
strings of the first form to initdb?
