LC_CTYPE should determine the character set for messages and LC_MESSAGES
their language. For translated messages, gettext should automatically
convert the messages in the .mo file to the user's terminal's character
set as specified by LC_CTYPE (or overridden by OUTPUT_CHARSET). For
English messages, this is handled directly in the compiler.
