So I've Ubuntu too, I aliened the FC4 mc rpm version to it, but:
- it said, it needs glibc 2.3.5 for Utf-8 operations
- and requires the slang2 library, which was unavaliable.

as far as I can see at
Fedora is still stuck with the patched slang1.

Does anyone have a proper source code for a *working* Utf-8 Midnight

I did what I said, which was with Slang2, and Arkadiusz confirmed that it worked. Did not use alien, just source code with patches applied.

All I know is that there are 3 Slangs floating around:
1. original 1.4.x, which is also included, stripped down, with mc in the
   slang directory. If you use this one, no matter what, you don't get
2. patched 1.4.x, used by Fedora and some others. Has a few issues with
   non-patched mc (the mc configure script refuses to use it).
3. SLang 2.0.x, which also has UTF8-support, but you need to explicitly
   enable it, using SLutf8_enable(-1), as in my mail.
   Otherwise it will be in 8-bit mode, and from mc's point of view behaves
   just like the original 1.4.x.
   As far as I can see, for instance, mc in Debian testing/unstable is
   linked against slang2, but without UTF8-support.
