Ah, I see the point now, and can confirm the issue. This seem exactely what
upstream developers wanted, I suppose, but I agree that it's kinda weird that
one can extract fortunes in each language except the english.

I'll think about how to fix the issue. fortune-mod code does a lot of weird
things wrt to fortune extraction and locales management, probably I'll rewrite
much of it in a sane way.
