Bug #956: Encoding: nl_langinfo(CODESET) on cygwin 1.5 always returns US-ASCII
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/show/956

Author: Tom Link
Status: Open, Priority: Normal

It seems you cannot rely on nl_langinfo(CODESET) to return the proper charset on cygwin as it appears to always return
US-ASCII no matter what.

IMHO the configure script should not only check for the availability of langinfo but also for its functionality as it
seems to currently be a dummy function under cygwin.
