maybe another option would be modifying tr to recognize other [new] environment variables... TR_LANG, TR_LC_ALL, TR_LC_CTYPE and TR_LC_COLLATE. done that way, things could be set in /etc/make.conf (or, not need any patching, and not interfere with other uses of locale.

That would be rather ugly.

If tr a-z A-Z is supposed to be deceiving in some locales, then let it remain so unconditionally.

it can still be as ugly as one wants it to be, and in some ports that might be fine. but this option would provide a very simple option to reign in how ugly it is.
