Dear Maintainer,

While working on the "reproducible builds" effort [1], we have noticed
that 'tiger' could not be built reproducibly.

The attached patch fixes the locale used by ls to sort files, and uses
printf instead of echo to get the same behavior when SHELL is sh or dash.
Once applied, tiger can be built reproducibly in our current
experimental framework.

Regards,
Alexis Bienvenüe.
