First we have to fix the locale otherwise some of the arg parsing may fail.

Agreed for LC_ALL, but why LANGUAGE?. It is not even mentioned in the bash manual.

Then we fix the toolchain related variables to respect the user build

The GNU Coding Standards don't agree (http://www.gnu.org/prep/standards/html_node/Configuration.html):
"Specifying variables as arguments to configure, like this:
          ./configure CC=gcc
is preferable to setting them in environment variables:
          CC=gcc ./configure
as it helps to recreate the same configuration later with config.status".
