Just setting LC_TIME environment variable instead of LC_ALL would end up
with unreliable solution because LC_ALL has the highest priority.

If keeping error messages from perl has the utmost importance, it could be
achieved by
-                       perl -M'POSIX qw(strftime)' -ne 'BEGIN { $subject = 0 }
+                       perl -M'POSIX qw(strftime :locale_h)' -ne '
+                               BEGIN { setlocale(LC_TIME, "C"); $subject = 0 }
but the little perl helper script we are talking about hardly worths so
much efforts.
