I just have
export LANG=en_AU

This seems to set everything but LC_ALL.

Gentoo has a USE option of nls (native language support), it does not
seem to be well supported however if you turn it off. I got wierd
results when I built several packages without nls and then set the
locale. A rebuild with nls enabled was fine. I wouldn't be surprised if
this use flag disappeared in the future.
