i "believe" it's sourced by the desktop login manager, and inherited
into x sessions, but could be wrong.  anyway, afaict that was
a manual modification, as if i reconfigure locales and select a
different local it only puts LANG=foo in this file.

therefore, i think what would make the most sense to do then is to
do what i suggested in each of the plugins, where LC_ALL is transferred
to LANG (if set) and then unset.  i'll do sometihng like this upstream.

in the meantime, i'll reassign this bug to nagios-plugins.  guido: feel
free to tag this one upstream and it'll probably be fixed in 1.4.2 :)
