To me it seems that the problem lies in libc's strftime, as date relies on
strftime to print locale specific dates.
Actually when comparing libc's strftime.c in DragonFlyBSD to the one in OpenBSD,
for example, you can see that DragonFly doesn't try to find the locale but by
default uses a built-in locale, which is obviously the english one.
