Done: http://test.linuxfromscratch.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/LcAllPoll

You need to register a Wiki account to vote: 

PS: I don't think we should set LC_ALL at all (except during the LFS build). 
AFAIK, LC_ALL was designed to do quick changes on all LC_* variables (eg. to 
run a sane "diff" command to create a patch), and when unsetting it, you get 
your old environment values. This is what I have on my .bash_profile:

export LC_{CTYPE,MESSAGES}='pt_BR.ISO-8859-1'
