Hmm... I didn't see any 2-phase issues in the error message. Perhaps
_MSL_NO_LOCALE is somehow getting mistakenly turned on. We supply a
prefix header: UseDLLPrefix.h. Including this header turns on
(defines) _MSL_NO_LOCALE. Perhaps that header is getting mistakenly
included? I just double checked the 8.3 <mslconfig> and it is not
defined there (whew! :-) ).

A preprocess of format_test2.cpp would confirm whether or not getloc()
is listed as a member of basic_streambuf. If it is there, something
else is going on, and I'm not sure what yet. If it isn't there, then
somehow _MSL_NO_LOCALE is getting defined.
