Let OpenBSD speak french

Nowadays, most free software is localized. I don’t really care about using a french GUI but it sometime helps to automatically set tools like spellcheckers. Here’s the variables set I use so that most of my (graphical) applications speak french on OpenBSD (5.0):

# vi .profile LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8 MM_CHARSET=UTF-8 LC_ALL=$LANG LC_COLLATE=POSIX; export LANG MM_CHARSET LC_ALL LC_COLLATE

Voilà, c’est fait.
