I have been thinking of another way. If the locale [1] tool is available,
it will be used to query the locales present on the system, and pick
a non-C/POSIX locale out of them if any to perform the test, or skip it.

Something like that:
  locale -a | sed '/^C$/d;/^POSIX$/d' | sed -n '1p'

I will write the test tonight.
