Ah, on your OS nl_langinfo is defined inline as a static function in 
langinfo.h, so the hack used in the test of redefining the function 
cannot work. I guess we are supposed to add some configure check that 
nl_langinfo can be redefined... although for just one platform we could 
add a simple #if like we already do for mingw, so the test is skipped.

This seems specific to termux:
which can be identified with __TERMUX__ after including some random header

Anyway, you can ignore this error, it only says that a hack in a test is 
failing, nothing wrong with the library itself.
