This may be a stupid question, but I've tried to figure this
out on several occasions with no success.  I have an application
that uses strftime(3) to display dates using the locale's setting.
But this comes out as MM/DD/YY.  I'd really rather use the ISO 8601
format, YY/MM/DD.  What do I need to set LC_TIME to accomplish this?
Or do I need to configure and install my own locale?

(I'm running -current, if that matters)
