Running php 4.3.0/apache 1.3.27 on debian 3.0 (php & apache downloaded and compiled from non-debian sources) I've run into a problem with setlocale().

After a few hours trying to use gettext() to add swedish support to a site i discovered that the combination LC_ALL and sv_SE/swedish for setlocale() does not work. Almost all other combinations of LC_'s and languages I've tried works as expected. 

This short test script:

<?php
echo "LC_MESSAGES,swedish = ".setlocale(LC_MESSAGES,"swedish")."<br>";
echo "LC_MESSAGES,sv_SE = ".setlocale(LC_MESSAGES,"sv_SE")."<br>";
echo "LC_MESSAGES,danish = ".setlocale(LC_MESSAGES,"danish")."<br>";

echo "LC_ALL,swedish = ".setlocale(LC_ALL,"swedish")."<br>";
echo "LC_ALL,sv_SE = ".setlocale(LC_ALL,"sv_SE")."<br>";
echo "LC_ALL,danish = ".setlocale(LC_ALL,"danish")."<br>";

echo "LC_NUMERIC,swedish = ".setlocale(LC_NUMERIC,"swedish")."<br>";
echo "LC_NUMERIC,sv_SE = ".setlocale(LC_NUMERIC,"sv_SE")."<br>";
echo "LC_NUMERIC,danish = ".setlocale(LC_NUMERIC,"danish")."<br>";
?>

Returns the followning result:

LC_MESSAGES,swedish = swedish
LC_MESSAGES,sv_SE = sv_SE
LC_MESSAGES,danish = danish
LC_ALL,swedish = 
LC_ALL,sv_SE = 
LC_ALL,danish = danish
LC_NUMERIC,swedish = swedish
LC_NUMERIC,sv_SE = sv_SE
LC_NUMERIC,danish = danish


The config line is:

./configure \
--with-mysql \
--with-apxs=/usr/local/sbin/apxs \
--with-config-file-path=/etc/apache \
--enable-safe-mode \
--with-gettext=/usr/bin \
--with-exec-dir \
--with-xml \
--with-bz2 \
--with-zlib \
--with-gd \
--with-exif \
--with-jpeg-dir=/usr/lib \
--with-png-dir=/usr/lib \
--with-ttf \
--enable-gd-native-ttf 

I've generated _ALL_ locales available on the system.

Running the same test using C instead of PHP then LC_ALL combined with Swedish gives the correct result:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <locale.h>
       
int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
 printf("LC_MESSAGES,swedish = %s\n",setlocale(LC_MESSAGES,"swedish"));
 printf("LC_MESSAGES,sv_SE = %s\n",setlocale(LC_MESSAGES,"sv_SE"));
 printf("LC_MESSAGES,danish = %s\n",setlocale(LC_MESSAGES,"danish"));

 printf("LC_ALL,swedish = %s\n",setlocale(LC_ALL,"swedish"));
 printf("LC_ALL,sv_SE = %s\n",setlocale(LC_ALL,"sv_SE"));
 printf("LC_ALL,danish = %s\n",setlocale(LC_ALL,"danish"));

 printf("LC_NUMERIC,swedish = %s\n",setlocale(LC_NUMERIC,"swedish"));
 printf("LC_NUMERIC,sv_SE = %s\n",setlocale(LC_NUMERIC,"sv_SE"));
 printf("LC_NUMERIC,danish = %s\n",setlocale(LC_NUMERIC,"danish"));

 return 1;
}



LC_MESSAGES,swedish = swedish
LC_MESSAGES,sv_SE = sv_SE
LC_MESSAGES,danish = danish
LC_ALL,swedish = swedish
LC_ALL,sv_SE = sv_SE
LC_ALL,danish = danish
LC_NUMERIC,swedish = swedish
LC_NUMERIC,sv_SE = sv_SE
LC_NUMERIC,danish = danish

Works fine with PHP 4.3.2-dev (latest stable snapshot).
