I posted the same question to the libstdc++ mailing list and Benjamin
kindly answered my question and he suggested the following:

BK> It looks like it has something to do with ctype, and nothing to do with
BK> named locales.

BK> Named locales only work on GNU systems, or with systems that implement
BK> the new POSIX locale model (newlocale/duplocale/strcoll_l, etc). From
BK> what I understand, neither FreeBSD 7 nor Darwin meet these requirements.

So, is he right ?
