QT locales and fonts

In my quest to get OpenOffice.org to open using the KDE theme I have
figured out that my problem has to do with my QT and locales. When I
try to run OpenOffice from within KDE I get the following error.
I18N: X Window System doesn't support locale "en_US.UTF-8"
I18N: Operating system doesn't support locale "en_US"
I18N: X Window System doesn't support locale "C"
Qt: Locales not supported on X server
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib32/libpangohack.so.0.0' from LD_PRELOAD
cannot be preloaded: ignored.
OpenOffice will open, but it won't use the KDE theme. It looks like
something out of windows 95. It does try to ape the system colors.
In contrast, when I open OpenOffice in XFCE, it uses the GTK theme
KDE apps open without this kind of an error. However, I was intrigued
when I found that Scribus exits with a similar error. When I try to
start Scribus it tells me there are no suitable fonts on my system.
I have this gut feeling that these are the same problem, viewed
through different lenses.
I have tried to reconfigure locales, libqt3-mt, openoffice.org2, and
my xserver at one time or another. I even added spanish to my system
and switched to it as my local language, but got the same error. I
sortof know where my problem is, but I don't know what to do about it.
I started this new thread because I no longer think OpenOffice is
actually my problem. I think it is merely a symptom. Programs that
use QT directly seem to be having locale issues and thus won't start,
or won't use the QT/KDE theme.
