If Lazarus is depending on the language used by GDB to be English,
it sounds like Lazarus should override the user's environment in
terms of i18n. Typically, the language is determined via the LANG
and/or LC_* environment variables, so it should be able to force
English by setting LANG/LC_ALL et al to Eg. "C" before starting GDB.
