Since I apt-getted my debian again to dependencies-death, I decided to give arch a new try. As I am not trying to have nvidia, xfree, kernel26 etc on the system in one step, I am surprised to have xfree and gnome with gdm, while listening to keith jarrets cologne concert via totem just after an hour I started to install arch. Well.
What I really miss is some user-locales-wand. Where does arch read language and locale settings?
In debian, this stuff was placed in /etc/environment. Does arch behave the same way?
Since this is fixed on my machine, I feel lucky to have things like feet ore 39°F in the weather report.

You can set locale in ~/.bash_profile. Example:
. $HOME/.bashrc export LANG="en_GB.UTF-8" export LC_ALL="en_GB"
For system wide settings, you can add a script in /etc/profile.d:
# cat /etc/profile.d/lang.sh LC_ALL=XXX LANG=XXX LC_MESSAGES=XXX export LC_ALL LANG LC_MESSAGES
