This is only meaningful for Mac OS X.

Now thinking that you want Emacs to go into Mac-Roman mode I finally  
see that this can't be accomplished via LC_CTYPE: there is no locale  
defined for this "classical" encoding. It might work with

	(set-language-environment '<something with Mac-Roman>)

but it's just nonsense. Instead you either could set, as recommended,  
a default encoding for all TeX related files, or, much better IMO,  
you should set TeX Shop to prefer another default encoding. See its  
preferences pane. It offers some Latin (ISO 8859-x) and UTF  
encodings. Such are also provided by Mac OS X ('locale -a | grep -i  
iso' or 'locale -a | grep -i utf', maybe both augmented with a 'grep  
fr | ' after the first 'locale -a' part, in Emacs' *shell* buffer).  
When shell environment and TeX Shop settings match each other, then  
you could set in some bash RC file (~/.bash_profile maybe)

	export LC_CTYPE=fr_FR.ISO8859-15

to have the € at hand. Your LaTeX file will need to use


to translate the contents correctly.
