[pacman-dev] [PATCH] Run pacman test-suite with LC_ALL=C

Running the pacman test-suite in a non-English locale results in a few
failures.  Force the test-suite to run with LC_ALL=C.

Signed-off-by: Allan McRae <allan at archlinux.org>

Not sure if this is the best approach or whether we should just have the
three tests that require it to run under the C locale.
