I created a Swedish LC_COLLATE locale part for FreeBSD a while
back, with the specific purpose of using it with PostgreSQL,
and it was not very hard.
For sorting stuff:
Check /usr/src/share/colldef (the sorting algoritm is defined
by LC_COLLATE). I don't anything about bulgarian, though. Is it
using cyrillic characters? Try using one of the russion locales
to start with.
For character representation (LC_CTYPE), I have no experience,
but it should also be fairly easy. Maybe Bulgarian uses a
similar character set to for example Russian? You will only
need a character locale for each Check /usr/src/share/mklocale
For a complete locale, you would also need timedef
colldef(1) is man page to check for sorting (collate)...
mklocale(1) is for locale creation.
