Curiosity is the very basis of education and if you tell me that 
curiosity killed the cat, I say only that the cat died nobly.

Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64
For some time I had seen

 terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
  what():  locale::facet::_S_create_c_locale name not valid

when starting programs using boost (like gnucash); then it stopped
with a boost update, but another recent update brought it back. (I'm pretty
sure it was around 1.67.0).

pkgsrc compiled using gcc in case it matters,
# env | grep -e LC -e LANG

Perhaps it's a boost package bug instead?
