If you set LC_ALL, and the rest of the LC_ variables isn't automatically
set to the same thing, this usually indicates that the specific locale
is not installed.

Test which ones are installed with

localadm -lc

You might try to add it if missing with

localeadm -a en_US.ISO-8859-1 -d <path to packages/images>
