APAR IY26937 does include a Zh_CN.GB18030 locale. Here is a link to the
web site where it can be obtained.

Thanks Mark !
That may mean IBM AIX 5 support converison between GB18030 and
Unicode, but I don't see this is a system level of support because
there is no locale names for GB18030 in the doc of AIX 5 :
Zh_CN Simplified Chinese People's Republic of China GBK
zh_CN Simplified Chinese People's Republic of China IBM-eucCN
ZH_CN Chinese People's Republic of China UTF-8
