On **MY** system, the /etc/environment file contains the setting
of both LANG and LC_ALL to identical values.

However, I don't remember if I did this myself, or if some
system tool or library setup did it for me, so I don't know how
it is on a "clean" Debian box.

Also I don't know exactly if or when this file is used.
