LANG not set, hangs iconv_getDefaultCodepage()


My system config is Linux hal-opteron 2.6.5-7.97-default #1 Fri Jul 2 14:21:59 UTC 2004 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I have a problem caused in the code, when LANG or LC_ALL is not exported. (not set)

The software that I am building works perfectly on other linux distributions, regardless of the LANG, or LC_ALL env variables being set or not. But on the SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 (x86_64) - Kernel \r (\l) system.. if LANG or LC_ALL is not set, then a function , iconv_getDefaultCodepage() in iconv_cnv.c file just hangs and control doesnt return to my function.

Can anyone help? Is ther a patch for this?
