I was using Alpine's package (1.1.3 and cherry-picked fixes).
But after running git pull; ./configure; make; the new does not
fix this problem (tried with both LANG and LC_ALL set to each of C,
C.UTF-8, and POSIX).

Also, this error happens with mongodb on glibc systems where
localization isn't properly set up, so the error happens somewhere in the C++
toolchain/library stack (libstdc++ or perhaps icu?).
