I expect that tcemain is called from BE scripts that include $LANG by 
default. The only thing when $LANG is not there, it may be CLI scripts.

But I think we should require $LANG in TCEmain. I even had an idea to 
move many hard-coded links from TCEmain to separate language file. It is 
a bit strange and disappointing for users to see errors in English 
because often they cannot understand it and work with different language 
by default. But it comes to changing logging system, etc. Big change...

Still I think we need $LANG there.
