The OSX machine doesn't have a definition for `german' but it probably
has one for en_US, for example. Try de or de_DE or de_DE.ISO8859-1
instead of `german' and see if you get what you'd expect. FYI, I've
never used OSX, so I'm flying blind.

On my system, charmaps in /usr/share/i18n/locales and definitions in
/usr/lib/locale, and I would use localedef to build definitions from the
charmaps (I think. I might have those directories reversed.).

I've never used (or seen) OSX, but does it use man? (I'm absolutely not
being a smarta$$ here). If it has man, look at the man pages for 
`localedef' and `locale' and that may get you headed in the right
