The command is mklocale(1).

id_ID locale(s) are not included in FreeBSD. If you have correct LC_*
files, you should talk to FreeBSD team member responsible for l10n,
(which is, according to

Andrey) about official inclusion. I also suggest you to use
freebsd-i18n at mailing list for that purpose.

Beside this, please don't forget that, if you just need Indonesian
translations of userland applications, you can just install appropriate
ports, for example:

  misc/kde3-i18n-id    Indonesian messages and documentation for KDE3
  textproc/id-aspell   Aspell Indonesian dictionary
