cygwin sets LANG through the system-wide /etc/profile.d/lang.sh script.
however, you may overide this in 2 way :
* system-wide by creating a script in /etc/profile.d, such as 0lang.sh
or zlang.sh containing export LANG="nl_NL.UTF-8"
* at user level by adding export LANG="nl_NL.UTF-8" in your
don't modify the system-wide lang.sh provided by cygwin since it may
envolve in the future.
