tests/scripts/features/file determines the expected error message by:

| # Find the error that will be printed
| my $e;
| open(my $F, '>', 'file.out') and die "Opened read-only file!\n";
| $e = "$!";

This will reflect the locale set at the beginning of the script.  The spawned make however will run with the cleansed LC_ALL=C environment which will give the error message in English.

  The attached patch fixes this for me.
