The options are:

A. Implement g_locale_to_utf8() equivalent code (perhaps copy from
   glib?). But it needs iconv() anyway, and needs checks about these
   in configure.

B. Checks glib dependency and use g_locale_to_utf8() only if glib

C. Do not add UTF-8 conversion to the Xft backend.

We are OK if sawfish has the pango backend, so I will not mind any
options to be taken :-).

It will be happy if we can use functions in font.c, won't it?

I have the same dilemma where GDK_USE_XFT is checked. So I implemented
use_xft() function in font.c; the same code is found in
