[rrd-developers] getting rid of some of the LOCALE magic

in rrd_graph I am calling

    setlocale(LC_TIME, "");
    setlocale(LC_CTYPE, "");

this causes the locale settings to be reset to whatever the
coresponding environment variable sais ... this is nice when people
set the LC_* variable in the surrounding code ... but it cause
unexpected behaviour, if people use setlocale when calling rrdtool
as a library ...

I think about dropping the calls for 1.4 ... what do you think ?
