Hi all,

Here's a small oneliner patch to fix xserver's build using locales that
have latin-based alphabets but have different uppercasing/lowercasing
rules as Western languages, such as Turkish [1].

Basically, this patch forces LC_ALL=C when running awk to generate
hw/xfree86/common/xf86DefModeSet.c to force English lowercasing rules.

This patch is currently applied in Gentoo on top of 1.5.2.
