the patch doesn't work as-is. Setting LANG=en_US.UTF-8 is not enough.
The environment also needs the path to the glibc locales for the setting
to take effect. The stdenv-updates branch contains several commits that
address this issue:
Cherry-picking those commits into 'master' is not straight-forward,
though, because the stdenv-updates branch contains a whole lot of other
Haskell-related updates that master doesn't have yet.
I am about to back-port those updates to the master branch. You can
expect an appropriate commit during the day tomorrow that will include
this particular feature.
