IIRC, some(?) free BSD systems have UTF-8 issues; someone has to check
the linus-utf8 mailinglist archive, please.

I think it's this way. (lib)iconv is available for *BSD, too; but on
those systems you are not able to display UTF-8 properly (please correct
me, if I'm wrong). This essentially means .po/.mo files encoded in
UTF-8 will not work on those systems.
