I know it. I was the FreeBSD GNOME binaries maintainer, and still maintain some.

In *BSD, many multibyte functions specified by POSIX are not implemented.
I can write an ad-hoc patch for nl_langinfo(CODESET)in *BSD. Such as:

nl_langinfo(char* codeset) {
  if( !strcmp(getenv("LANG"), "ja_JP.EUC") ) {
    return "EUC-JP";
  /* zh_CN returns GB2312 */
  /* ko_KR returns EUC-KR */

But why you suddenly say about *BSD?
HelixGNOME doesn't support *BSD, and some apps listed up in
GNOME 1.4 candidate are just for Linux. Do you know how many patches
are applied to FreeBSD ports/packages for GNOME? Do you know how long
gdm was unavailable on FreeBSD?
