Yes, it uses strcoll.

No, I don't see anything related in the sources, it just calls strcoll
(or strcmp as fallback), nothing more.

I compiled some test program calling strcoll, and there it didn't ignore
the dot.  Sorry, I don't why this is different in ls.

Yes! ls -al with en_US behaves the same as with en_US.utf8, dots are
ignored.
