I'm not sure if I got you right, but I think what you need to do is
indicate a correct font in your config.h (ie. one whose encoding matches
the system encoding). Ubuntu probably uses UTF-8 -- efont should be a
good choice (I tried it when I was experimenting with Japanese and I was
happy with the results; which does not mean that it contains only
Japanese characters!). I can't recall the URL it can be downloaded from,
but Google is your friend.
