How about changing initdb to use encoding=UTF-8 and no-locale when the
encoding of default locale is not suppoted in the server? I think it is
the most frequently used combination when we cannot use the default
encoding in server.

The present initdb without options always fails in such environments.
Using UTF-8 with no-locale is better than error.
(Error is better than using wrong locale, though.)
