I know. But running gnucash from a terminal doesn't
produce any GTK-locale-errors, my alphabetical order
is all right and everything is displayed in the
desired language. So GTK2 seems to support other
locales than "C". What am I doing wrong?

Hmmh, that's definitely not true for LC_MONETARY and
Gnucash. Gnucash obviously fetches its
currency-symbols from /usr/share/locale. So I suspect
that other GTK-apps get their locales from
I am a bit confused, because MacPorts is said to be
somehow self-reliant, e.g. libraries or apps that
might be available from MacOS X' itself (e.g. perl),
are normally ignored and rebuilt and installed in
/opt/local/... ; It took me ages to figure out that
the missing € (EURO) is to be fixed by editing a
file in a MacOS X standard directory.
