AFAIK, the locale support in FreeBSD 4.1 is incomplete.  Support for
LC_NUMERIC was only added in 4.6 - the release notes for 4.6 say:

  The locale support was synchronized with the code from FreeBSD
  -CURRENT. This change brings support for the LC_NUMERIC,
  LC_MONETARY, and LC_MESSAGES categories, as well as improvements to
  strftime(3), revised locale definitions, and improvement of the
  localization of many base system programs.
