[PC-BSD Pbi-dev] locale not suported by C library

when I start thunderbird I get the time in 24h format and not 12h.

I then tried to figure out the issue and when I manually start thunderbird I 
receive this error:

        Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
        Using the fallback 'C' locale.

if I run a "locale" I get that all the variable are set to "C".  if I modify 
the system setting (they are already at en_US) and confirm them, nothing 
happens, I even tried to convert in Italian and back to en_US... but 

I also try to add
    export LC_TIME=en_US    #or en_US.utf8
    export LC_LANG=en_US    #or en_US.utf8
    export LANG=en_US    #or en_US.utf8

and even tried to make a symlink in /PCBSD/local/share/compat/locale from 
en_US.UTF-8 to en_US.. but still nothing...

anybody here was able to see the time in 12h (AM/PM).  I have the same 
problem with 1.5, 7.0.x, and 7.1a2
