[Mac OS X 10.10.5] Macports install error :unknown locale: UTF-8

Hi guys!
I am new to python and matplotlib.
I installed everything with macports and when I run the matplotlib test

python2.7 -c 'import matplotlib; print matplotlib.__version__,
matplotlib.__file__'

I get the following

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File
"/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/site-packages/matplotlib/__init__.py",

    rcParams = rc_params()
  File
"/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/site-packages/matplotlib/__init__.py",
line 975, in rc_params
    return rc_params_from_file(fname, fail_on_error)
  File

    return self.gen.next()
  File

    encoding = locale.getdefaultlocale()[1]
  File

line 543, in getdefaultlocale
    return _parse_localename(localename)
  File
"/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/locale.py",
line 475, in _parse_localename
    raise ValueError, 'unknown locale: %s' % localename
ValueError: unknown locale: UTF-8

Do you guys have any idea what is happening....I have not done enything
weards just follow simple steps to install it.

I want to use QUTIP and the matplotlib is essential for it...please if
someone know it would be really nice

thanks!
regards,
