retitle 660209 initdb doesn't work with locales-all


the problem is still there. the reason for it is that initdb looks for
/etc/default/locale rather than $LANG or $LC_*.

This has the effect that on a proper system using locales-all, where
/etc/default/locale does not exist, all DBs are always created with
SQL_ASCII instead of UTF8 albeit the system is using en_US.UTF-8 (or
C.UTF-8) and LANG/LC_ALL are properly set.
