locale problems [resolved]

first i noticed this error when I started (gqview worked fine other than this error)  gqview from the command line:

(process:28591): Gdk-WARNING **: locale not supported by C library

(gqview:28591): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
        Using the fallback 'C' locale.

Then i noticed this error when trying to run hp-toolbox (which wouldn't run at all)

error: Unable to set locale.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/hp-toolbox", line 38, in ?
    from base.g import *
  File "/usr/share/hplip/base/g.py", line 136, in ?
    locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, 'en_US.UTF-8')
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/locale.py", line 381, in setlocale
    return _setlocale(category, locale)
locale.Error: unsupported locale setting

This is what is in my rc.conf:

 cat /etc/rc.conf | grep -i locale
# LOCALE: available languages can be listed with the 'locale -a' command
LOCALE="en_US.utf8"

and this is when I run locale -a

locale -a
locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory
C
POSIX

any suggestions?

#en_SG  ISO-8859-1
en_US.UTF-8     UTF-8
#en_US  ISO-8859-1
