Re: Is locale ja not supported by libc in woody?
You may have better luck if you upgrade to a more recent branch
(testing, probably). I've had much, much better luck with locales in
more recent releases, and I recall a great deal of unpleasantness with
locales back when Woody was in testing. I run testing/unstable, and
everything works quite nicely "out of the box":
