Problems with 5.6.0 in Mandrake

mattman has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm using a combo roll-your-own/Mandrake 7.2 Linux distribution, with perl-5.6.0-17mdk and associated packages installed. My problem is this:
==========
matt@mattman ~ > perl -v
perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
        LANGUAGE = "en_US:en",
        LC_ALL = (unset),
        LC_MONETARY = "en_US",
        LC_CTYPE = "en_US",
        LC_NUMERIC = "en_US",
        LC_MESSAGES = "en_US",
        LC_TIME = "en_US",
        LC_COLLATE = "en_US",
        LANG = "en"
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").

This is perl, v5.6.0 built for i386-linux

I can't seem to figure out how to set the locale and stuff to get rid of these messages. Using the set command doesn't list them, but setenv does. I'm using tcsh, by the way. Same thing happens if I use bash. Anybody have any answers, or should I just rebuild from source?

    [~] $ perldiag locale perl: warning: Setting locale failed. (S) The whole warning message will look something like: perl: warning: Setting locale failed. perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings: LC_ALL = "En_US", LANG = (unset) are supported and installed on your system. perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C"). Exactly what were the failed locale settings varies. In the above the settings were that the LC_ALL was "En_US" and the LANG had no value. This error means that Perl detected that you and/or your system administrator have set up the so-called variable system but Perl could not use those settings. This was not dead serious, fortunately: there is a "default locale" called "C" that Perl can and will use, the script will be run. Before you really fix the problem, however, you will get the same error message each time you run Perl. How to really fix the problem can be found in the perllocale manpage section LOCALE PROBLEMS. [~] $

    perllocale has a whole lot of information on how to solve/fix/mute this issue.
