I wish you luck. A lot probably depends on your linux version.

Things were, that gnu packages in general were not unicode compatible,
although unicode patches were available for many of them. Maintainers
didn't include them for varioous reasons.  RHEL went ahead, and did it's
thing and was the first unicode distro IIRC. As the patches bacame more
generally applied, the unicode code required fixing itself, so some
things needed old, and some newer unicode code. Linuxfromscratch, which
patches the original gnu packages as required, is at least transparent
in that you can see what's going on: You download the packages, apply
the patches and the various tweaks, and compile it.

You sound like a guy who can hack some code. I'd take this to the
development list and bug those guys.
