Can't use writeFile to write unicode characters.

|Test Case:||Blocked By:|
I tried to the "locale" environmental variables to "en_US.utf8",
but still I cannot write unicode characters.
main = do hSetEncoding stdout utf8 putStrLn "αρχίδια" writeFile "hello.txt" "σκατούλες"
αρχίδια commitBuffer: invalid argument (Illegal byte sequence)
without manually hSetEncoding stdin, putStrLn also
fails with the same error message.
From what I was told on #haskell, on linux ghc
uses setlocale to figure out what encoding to use,
but this is not present in OpenBSD.
Simply making those functions read $LANG (I think)
would solve this for OpenBSD, but I might be wrong.
