I did this:

    $ LC_ALL=foo mhparam
    setlocale failed, check your LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, and LANG environment 
variables, continuing...

glibc setlocale() uses those environment variables, but not
LANGUAGE.  So, "LANGUAGE=foo perl -e 42" doesn't trigger the
warning on my Linux box.  But it's in the warning message when
it does get triggered, like yours above.
