msgfilter: warning: Locale charset "ANSI_X3.4-1968" is different from

                    Output of 'msgfilter' might be incorrect.
                    Possible workarounds are:
                    - Set LC_ALL to a locale with encoding UTF-8.
                    - Convert the translation catalog to ASCII using 'msgconv',
                      then apply 'msgfilter',
                      then convert back to UTF-8 using 'msgconv'.

May be we should not force any specific locale and just mention in
INSTALL that during installation locale with UTF-8 codeset should be
