The problem is that v.info doesn't have an option to produce
machine-readable output. The -t switch doesn't cover all of the
information which v.info can output.

FWIW, v.report has:

COLNAMES="`v.info -c map=$MAP layer=$LAYER | grep -v '^Displaying column type' | ...

But the 'Displaying column type' message is localised.

v.report uses LC_ALL=C, which solves the above issue but is a bug in
and of itself.

The comment says:

	# setting environment, so that sort works properly in all languages
	LC_ALL=C         # according to 'man sort'

If it's just for sorting, it should be setting LC_CTYPE (but LC_ALL
has to be unset, which means that the other LC_* variables have to be
set to $LC_ALL first).

But every occurence of "sort" in that script uses -n, which shouldn't
be affected by locale.
