patch file for adapting the locales

In the german speaking countries it is very very uncommon to use the 12-hour
clock time notation. So it is a bit vexing that for example the 'w' or 'uptime'
command use this format to display times.

The 'w' command has a switch wheter to use the 12-hour or 24-hour clock. It is
decided on the existence of a valid 12-hour clock format (am/pm) in the users
locale. If the definiton is empty, the tool uses the 24-hour clock.

My suggestion is, to remove the three relevant lines in each locale files for
Austria and Germany.

A possible patch file for the files "de_AT.UTF-8.src", "de_AT.ISO8859-15.src",
"de_DE.UTF-8.src", "de_DE.ISO8859-15.src" of the source directory
"share/timedef" is attached.
