     "All implementations shall define a locale as the default locale,
      to be invoked when no environment variables are set, or set to the
      empty string.  This default locale can be the C locale or any other
      implementation-defined locale.  Some implementations may provide
      facilities for local installation administrators to set the default
      locale, customizing it for each location.  IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 does
      not require such a facility."
