Yup, still doesn't seem to work. Assuming this is what you wanted me to
test ;-) Test program attached, results below. It returns NULL for
whatever I try with LC_MESSAGES. And yes, Windows has weird names for
locales :-) See

tml/_crt_language_strings.asp.

Or do I need to add some kind of initialization of the gettext library?

$ ./localetest.exe 
LC_CTYPE -> NULL: C
LC_CTYPE -> C: C
LC_CTYPE -> en_US: (null)
LC_CTYPE -> english-us: English_United States.1252
LC_MESSAGES -> NULL: (null)
LC_MESSAGES -> C: (null)
LC_MESSAGES -> en_US: (null)
LC_MESSAGES -> english-us: (null)
