Thanks for your help, but it doesn't work either :-(

I did that. For localedef it hasn't an entry. But for locale it has one. 
I don't think that's what you expectet (it seems to belong to perl)

locale(3)        Perl Programmers Reference Guide       locale(3)

        locale - Perl pragma to use and avoid POSIX locales for
        built-in operations

            @x = sort @y;       # ASCII sorting order
                use locale;
                @x = sort @y;   # Locale-defined sorting order
            @x = sort @y;       # ASCII sorting order again

        This pragma tells the compiler to enable (or disable) the
        use of POSIX locales for built-in operations (LC_CTYPE for
        regular expressions, and LC_COLLATE for string compari-
        son).  Each "use locale" or "no locale" affects statements
        to the end of the enclosing BLOCK.

        See the perllocale manpage for more detailed information
        on how Perl supports locales.

2000-03-30                 perl v5.6.0

Perhaps this information helps you to help me further:
Mac OS X is based on FreeBSD 3.0 (AFAIR).
