Draft: Fix #139: Use LANG envvar to set up external format and file name encoding

Raymond Toy requested to merge issue-139-use-lang-to-set-external-format into master

On startup use the LANG envvar to set up *default-external-format* and set the system streams to use the specified external format. The filename encoding (unix::*filename-encoding*) is also set to the same external format.

If the codeset specified by LANG is not known to cmucl, print a warning, and leave *default-external-format* and friends unchanged.
