perl and locales

Hi all.
I have worked through LFS 6, 20040912, using a straightforward
Athlon based PC. I've also got startx working, and made a start on
Gnome 2.8
I have hit a snag with a package (libbonobo, I think it was) which
requires perl. I had thought perl5.8.5 was OK, but apparently not.
I get error messages saying that LC_CTYPE, LC_MESSAGES AND LC_ALL
cannot be set to default locale:no such file or directory.
I get the same messages if I enter the command 'locale' and also if
I enter 'perl -v'
No doubt the fault is entirely mine but I don't know where to look.
I cannot see anything on the FAQ lists.
Could anyone be kind enough to tell me what to do? Even RTFM would
help if you point to the relevant page!
