I use LANG=C/en_US myself, but wouldn't it make sense to fix this
globally in the main Makefile instead as we might have similar
problems other places? The only disadvantage I can think of is that
the users will get error messages in English (but that's a good thing
when they send logs to us).

Could someone with a different locale test that please? E.G. add an:

export LANG=C

To the toplevel Makefile.
