I seem to have messed up the locale settings on my machine ... here's
what perl says when I try to run a script.

perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
	LANGUAGE = (unset),
	LC_ALL = (unset),
	LANG = "en_US.ISO-8859-9"
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").
Similarly any GNOME application gives the following error

Gdk-WARNING **: locale not supported by C library

The original error messages had reported "english" as the locale
setting. While experimenting I ended up with the above strings when I
stuck an alias for "english" in /etc/locale.aliases. Where do I set up
my language environemt? Do I need to restart bash and all? I am using
Debian unstable ... the whole thing probably started when I upgraded my
glibc and other packages ..
