@RogerRiggs I haven't tested on other OS's, I will try to take some time to test it.

from the test doc of openjdk
> If your locale is non-US, some tests are likely to fail. To work around this you can set the locale to US. On Unix platforms simply setting LANG="en_US" in the environment before running tests should work. On Windows or MacOS, setting JTREG="VM_OPTIONS=-Duser.language=en -Duser.country=US" helps for most, but not all test cases.

Maybe in linux setting environment before test is enough. At first, I have set `LC_ALL` and `LANG` on MAC, which is not work.
