It must be set in the environment read by gnome-terminal. Appears your
locale is set too late. 

Try for instance:
1. killall gnome-terminal (do not run this on Solaris ;)
2. start an xterm
3. start gnome-terminal

now see what encoding gnome-terminal selected...

Change your config so that the locale is correctly set from gdm.
