t/run/locale.t: new STDERR warning
Message ID:
A test recently added to  t/run/locale.t is producing noise on STDERR when
building perl on my system.

The test is (in part):

    local $ENV{LC_ALL} = "This is not a legal locale name";

    fresh_perl_like("", qr/Falling back to the $fallback locale/,
                    {}, "check that illegal startup environment falls back");

and it produces this output:

$ ./perl -Ilib  t/run/locale.t > /dev/null
sh: warning: setlocale: LC_ALL: cannot change locale (This is not a legal locale name): No such file or directory

Should this be silenced?
