Not for me:

  $ cat > setl.c <<EOF
  #include <stdio.h>
  #include <locale.h>
  #include <langinfo.h>

  int main(int argc, char **argv)
    char *loc;
    if (argc > 1)
      loc = setlocale (LC_ALL, argv[1]);
      loc = setlocale (LC_CTYPE, NULL);
    printf ("locale: %s charset: %s\n", loc, nl_langinfo (CODESET));
    return 0;
  $ gcc -o setl setl.c
  $ ./setl
  locale: C charset: ANSI_X3.4-1968
  $ ./setl C
  locale: C charset: ANSI_X3.4-1968
  $ ./setl C.utf8
  locale: C.utf8 charset: UTF-8
  $ ./setl C.UTF-8
  locale: C.UTF-8 charset: UTF-8
