vim, screen, xterm

1. dclip use latin-1 encoding, even I converted it to utf8, the
   problem persisted.
2. my signature contains chinese characters in utf8, can use see them
   or just some garbage (??????). You may try it as sample text.
3. the dmenu should use fonts that display unicode, I put this into

static const char font[] = "-*-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-*,-*-ukai-*-r-normal--*-*-*-*-*-*";
