Bug #130356 prompted the change to groff. The BSD list may know more.

looking at the netbsd code, nl_langinfo() has been supported since
relatively forever, but CODESET is a newer addition. given these
days, CODESET should appear in netbsd 1.6.
[ .. ]
1.1 (jtc 21-Jun-94): char *
1.1 (jtc 21-Jun-94): nl_langinfo(item)
1.1 (jtc 21-Jun-94): nl_item item;
[ .. ]
1.7 (tshiozak 26-Mar-01): case CODESET:
1.8 (tshiozak 17-Mar-02): s = _CurrentRuneLocale->rl_codeset;
1.7 (tshiozak 26-Mar-01): if (!s)
1.7 (tshiozak 26-Mar-01): s = "";
i don't know anything about freebsd for this.
