Locale settings in Bash Shell Startup Files needs reworking

Description

From this thread: http://linuxfromscratch.org/pipermail/blfs-dev/2006-June/015387.html

A couple points that are not optimal right now.

  1. LC_ALL should not be set in /etc/profile. Only LANG is necessary.
  1. G_FILENAME_ENCODING=@locale should really be moved to the Glib2 page. I believe we should just have the instruction to append it to /etc/profile.d/i18n.sh on that page.
  1. We really shouldn't redo the locale settings discussion here when there is a much stronger explanation in LFS: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/development/chapter07/profile.html. We can just place a pointer to that page.

Please comment on the attached diff. It tries to accomplish what's in the Description of this ticket. If no one has any problems, I'll commit it.

Good, although I would also add a pointer to the "locale related issues" page to glib configuration instructions. Also, "GLib assumes" => "By default, Glib assumes".

Both good suggestions. See new attachment. Wording for the "locale issues" link seems ugly, though.

I see nothing ugly, and the text can be improved later, anyway.
