Subject: Re: Webkit/JavascriptCore did not work with musl libc

C/posix equals to UTF8,  some testcase need to adjust.
Lack of predefined locale, there are some locale-dependent codes. for 
example, seperators, date time format, locale-dependent sort etc. It's 
buggy to write locale-dependent codes but it exist.

Another problem about multilingul is the poor iconv,  some source may 
compiled but not works as expected. gnu/libiconv can be used as a 
suppliment, but there are also some testcase can not pass.
