 Log Message:
 Reset the current locale to a sane value (that is, 'C') during the build
 of packages.  Several utilities behave differently or even incorrectly if
 a locale different than 'C' is set.
 One of these is perl, which spits a big warning and then breaks some
 packages.  An example is irssi, as described in PR pkg/29613 by Hanno
