svnversion locale error LANG LC_ALL

Okay here is one to be documented in this mail list archive.

Regarding Subversion 1.1.0

svnversion: error: cannot set LC_ALL locale
svnversion: error: environment variable LANG is en_US
svnversion: error: please check that your locale name is correct

You will get this error if you have the LANG environment variable set to
some string, like "en_US".

Particularily if you are compiling on Mac OS X 10.2.8 which apparently
has LANG set to "en_US" by default when you begin a terminal shell session.
I read one other person's posting, after searching Google, who was
getting this error and did not know what to do. So here is what you need
to do.

To fix, do not set LANG to any value. leave it blank.

You will get the above error at the end of executing 'make install' or
when executing 'svnversion'.
