packages has to be able to build in whatever locale they are.
policy doesn't mandate any particular locale, nor builder, nor anything,
and instead I expect every person to be able to rebuild any package
(reproducibly, even) in whatever locale they find themselves in.

I looked up what sbuild is doing here: it doesn't do anything locale
related, the only difference is that it filters out all env variables
before starting.

Instead, I'm thinking about removing the 'export LANG=C' and
'export LC_ALL=C' that are there already.

Please see #838175 for a similar thing about sbuild.
