This is normally set for the 'display charset', but it causes Samba to
try and lookup the LANG= and other environment variable to figure out
what character set is in use on a given system.

The default for unix charset and display charset is 'UTF8', which is our
recommendation unless you have particular reasons (such as existing
filenames) to change it.
