Summary:                    CMake cannot test compiler features in Turkish
locale
Description: 
When using Turkish UTF-8 locale(tr_TR.UTF-8) CMake exits with error below

   CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.1/Modules/CMakeTestCCompiler.cmake:78
(CMAKE_DETERMINE_COMPILE_FEATURES):
  Unknown CMake command "CMAKE_DETERMINE_COMPILE_FEATURES".

Exporting LANG and LC_ALL variables as en_US.UTF-8 fixes problem temporarily.

Steps to Reproduce: 
- Download any source with CMake build support
- Run
  $ export LANG=tr_TR.UTF-8
  $ export LC_ALL=tr_TR.UTF-8
  $ cmake
- It will exit.

Additional Information: 
I suspect that there may be a Turkish 'I' problem in source code. If it does a
uppercase/lowercase conversion there is a risk that the result of conversion
wrong/non-English.

I'm also adding trace output of cmake.
