Makefile: set LC_CTYPE, LC_COLLATE, LC_NUMERIC to C
H. Peter Anvin [Thu, 17 Dec 2009 14:56:11 +0000 (06:56 -0800)]
There are a number of common Unix constructs like character ranges in
grep/sed/awk which don't work as expected with LC_COLLATE set to other
than C.  Similarly, set LC_CTYPE and LC_NUMERIC to C to avoid other
nasty surprises.

In order to make sure these actually take effect we also have to
clear LC_ALL.
