[vlc-devel] [PATCH] configure: Add a new test for <locale.h>

Don't simply assume that the uselocale() check is equivalent for the check of
detecting the <locale.h> POSIX header.

The NetBSD system ships with POSIX <locale.h>, however without the uselocale()

Include <locale.h> in src/config/file.c for systems with detected <locale.h>
instead of just for systems with detected uselocale() and not being __APPLE__.
