Hi Greg,

thanks for the hint!

Grrrr, this means rebuild of nearly 1200 ports in three different builds to get
rid of the silly NLS change.

Anyway I have to adjust some more settings, in p5-libwww the option "SSL" was changed to
"HTTPS" which breaks p5-Plack and other packages which are depending on p5-Crypt-SSLeay
(hell, https is defined as encrypted http on port 443 else the networker speaks from SSL ...)
