Follow-up Comment #5, bug #1212 (project coreutils):

There are three environment variables that control how ls sorts:
LANG (default for all categories, if unset, a platform default is used)
LC_COLLATE (particular locale for collation [ie sorting] rules)
LC_ALL (override for all categories)

If you want UTF8 for everything except sorting, then set LANG to en_US.UTF-8,
and LC_COLLATE to C, and leave LC_ALL unset.
