        The LC_ALL environment variable takes precedence over LANG (or
        any other LC_ variables, for that matter.)  Back a decade ago,
        I’ve seen RedHat-derived distributions using LC_ALL (instead of
        LANG) to set the locale, so that could be the issue.

        My suggestion would be to use LC_ALL=C instead of a LANG

        BTW, on GNU/Linux, the ‘locale’ command helps troubleshooting
        such issues.
