FreeBSD 3.0-RELEASE #0: ru_RU.KOI8-R
IRIX 6.5: ru [Uses iso-8859-5]
Solaris 2.6 seems to call its Russian locale `ru' like IRIX, but it
isn't clear what character set it wants as someone didn't want to
install all of the necessary fonts and the oh-so-useful 2.6 locale
files don't say. I seem to remember that iso-8859-5 would be used,
but I can't find anything definitive for Solaris at the moment.
It's also worth noting that the locale for FreeBSD worked for me in
all releases of 2.2.x and 3.x.
