This variable also affects the interpretation of
the response to
-ok; while the LC_MESSAGES variable selects the
actual pattern used to interpret the response to

fnmatchfunction supports this.
This variable also affects the interpretation of any character classes
in the regular expressions used to interpret the response to the

catalogue, as opposed to according to
find's own message
