$ LANG=en_GB locale first_weekday
$ LANG=en_US locale first_weekday

So (under Slackware 13.0)...

As root:

1: Edit /usr/share/i18n/locales/en_GB (and/or en_GB.utf8 if you're using
1.1: Find the line "first_weekday 2" and change that '2' to a '1'
2: mkdir /tmp/en_GB
3: localedef -f ISO-8859-1 -i en_GB /tmp/en_GB
(change 'ISO-8859-1' to 'UTF8' as needed)
4: cd /usr/lib/locale
5: mv en_GB en_GB.bak
6: mv /tmp/en_GB ./

Done, restart what needs restarting (i.e. log out and back into XFCE to
bump Orage) and...

$ LANG=en_GB locale first_weekday
