gul at cheetah;~>LANG=ru_UA.KOI8-U perl
perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
        LC_ALL = (unset),
        LANG = "ru_UA.KOI8-U"
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").

For working with needed locale I do after installworld:

root at cheetah;/usr/share/locale>rm -rf ru_UA.KOI8-U
root at cheetah;/usr/share/locale>cp -rp ru_RU.KOI8-R ru_UA.KOI8-U
root at cheetah;/usr/share/locale>cp -p uk_UA.KOI8-U/LC_CTYPE ru_UA.KOI8-U

After that it works:

root at cheetah;/usr/share/locale>LANG=ru_UA.KOI8-U perl
root at cheetah;/usr/share/locale>
