Which tools did you have in mind that generate native code and are
affected by LANG!=C ?

One of the simplest ways to fix the problem is to replace for example
`date` with `LANG=C date`
It should be rather simple to prefix those tools that you are thinking
of with a LANG=C prefix.

Exporting LANG=C to the shell is very inconvenient because it breaks a
lot of shell usability for me.

Just globally setting LANG=C inside the makefiles, would also work, but
it is much nicer if we
know what we are doing and just target those commands who actually matter.
