unless you want to be specific in the LC_ variables to inherit, it's better
moving forward that you opt for LC_ALL, at present (tested on FreeBSD), only
having LC_CTYPE means that localisation is broken

Stock cat in base:
% cat ouauouau
cat: ouauouau: No such file or directory

Using LC_ALL instead.
% /usr/obj/usr/src/bin/cat/cat thotuhou
cat: thotuhou: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden

I could ammend the patch to use the addition of the specific variable but it'd
create less churn in the future to switch or add new additions to setlocale().
