This patch does not change any behaviors of OS/2 port of gettext.
Because this patch embeds charset aliases into localcharset.c instead of
using charset.alias file, and fixes the problem a locale instead of a
charset if a charset is not specified is returned. In addition,
localcharset.c module itself does not use locale.alias. It is used in
localealias.c. Frankly, I don't know that how localcharset.c and
localealias.c have a relation to each other.
