The LANG variable is set by your locale choice on Gentoo. If the admin
is willing to mess with it,

  # eselect locale list

should output something like,

  Available targets for the LANG variable:
  [1]   C
  [2]   en_US
  [3]   en_US.iso88591
  [4]   en_US.utf8 *
  [5]   POSIX
  [ ]   (free form)

and then

  # eselect locale set 4

  Setting LANG to en_US.utf8 ...
  Run ". /etc/profile" to update the variable in your shell.

will set it globally.
