pkgsrc overrides the locale settings from the shell.

If you want to use particular ones, you need to set them in the
package Makefile after the inclusion of; some py-* packages
do that to allow their tests to pass.

Also, I think that meson fails a couple self tests, but works well
enough on NetBSD in general. Some just need more or less heavy
additional dependencies that are not needed in the general case.
Tracking down and fixing the errors would be nice though :)
