The reason is there are "NO answer" to the question you ask.
This may be an FAQ, but I couldn't find the answer on unicode.org.
Depend on which UNIX and which version. Depend on how you define "most flavours"
It seems that most flavours of unix define wchar_t to be 4 bytes.
No answer for that because
If the locale is set to be Unicode, what's in a wchar_t string?
The more interesting question is, why do you need to know the answer of your question. And the ANSI/C wchar_t model basically suggest, if you ask that question, you are moving to a wrong direction....
Is it UTF-32, or UTF-16 with the code units zero-extended to 4 bytes?
