The "normal" GNU packages works without problems. The "problem" is that
GNOME uses Pango so ALL strings should be UTF-8 althought you don't have
an UTF-8 locale. We cannot use the Gnu translation project conclusion
here because it does not work. If you don't believe me ask Owen or Havoc
or any GTK+/Pango hacker.
