    gcc50: Change c++ locale handling
    The biggest change is removing the modification of the specified locale.
    Before locales without extensions were appended with ".UTF-8" and
    modifiers (e.g. @euro) were silently stripped off.
    The latter is probably a bad idea, and even if we want to continue doing
    this (modifiers are not supported), it should be done at the library
    level, not at c++ on gcc level.  The no-extension problem has been solved
    today by creating symlinks at /usr/share/locale.
    The logic of the "gnu" support was mimicked by using newlocale, duplocale,
    and freelocale.  The generic version uses setlocale only.  This patch will
    be pushed upstream most likely.
