It has actually been decided that no localized gtkrc files
will be shipped along with gtk+, since it's various
distributions' job to make them. In reality, this seems
also true.

I encountered similar problem (big5 characters are not
shown) -- the default font becomes a Korean or Japanese
font, however.

Is it that gtk+ uses whatever font supplied by Xft instead
of deciding on it's own?
