For environment variables, the "search path" is LC_ALL, LC_category, LANG,  
system default. For the setlocale() function, there are only the LC_*  
constants, and an argument of "" means look for the above environment  
variables.

So, no, setting LANG *must* be sufficient. Otherwise, there is a bug  
somewhere. And if you set LC_ALL, then setting LANG should have absolutely  
no effect on the locale.
