country value patch dropped

I just commited a change to kde-workspace that drops the patch that
made startkde manually parse LANG and write the detected country value
into the user's config.

according to the source klocale now does what it is supposed to and
tires to figure out the country as follows
-> kconfig
    -> system
        -> en_US

this in particular means that now everything should behave as expected
even without the patch (e.g. if you install in german you shouldn't
get am/pm clocks).

the change is not uploaded yet but should land at least with the next
KDE 4.11 release. everyone doing localized test installs please keep
an eye out for regressions in this department. when in doubt you can
also open the locale kcm (kcmshell4 language) and check that the first
tab states the correct system country.
