That didn't appear to tell me anything useful, until I noticed:
Finished compilation: CÂ okt 18 01:02:10 EEST 2007
$ cd lib/gis/colors/
$ cat foo.make
COLORSRC := $(wildcard [a-z]*)
$ make -f foo.make test
aspect aspectcolr bcyr bgyr byg byr curvature differences elevation etopo2 evi foo.make grey grey1.0 grey255 gyr ndvi population rainbow ramp ryb ryg slope srtm terrain wave
$ LANG=lv_LV make -f foo.make test
aspect aspectcolr bcyr bgyr byg byr curvature CVS differences elevation etopo2 evi foo.make gyr grey grey1.0 grey255 ndvi population rainbow ramp ryb ryg slope srtm terrain wave
So, the way that $(wildcard ...) handles character ranges depends upon
locale settings. I don't know if that's intentional or on oversight;
locales simply aren't mentioned in the make documentation.
Setting LANG in the Makefiles doesn't help, as (AFAICT) setlocale()
gets called before the Makefiles are read.
In this case, changing [a-z]* to [abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz]* seems
to work. Ugly, but I guess that it will have to do.
