I'm using nvi on Mac OS X 10.10.3, installed from MacPorts.

Whenever I start the editor, the following message is displayed in my console:

./en_US.UTF-8: No such file or directory

I'm just curious as to what it tries to do. en_US.UTF-8 happens to be my locale setting:

$ locale
LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=
4

This seems to be an old but known problem on OS X.

This issue has a patch, which is unfortunately not yet incorporated. You can apply it manually to fix your nvi build.
