This suggests adding the following to local/config.php might work:

    setlocale (LC_COLLATE, 'fr_FR');

Or you could try:

    setlocale(LC_ALL, 'french');

See also: http://nz.php.net/manual/en/function.setlocale.php

My interpretation of the documentation is that on some systems, strcoll 
and strcasecmp will both use the sort order for the language specified 
in the locale. If this doesn't work, you may be able to fix the problem
by using the strcoll function instead of strcasecmp. However, strcoll is
case-sensitive, so may not give the desired result.

Hope this helps.
