Hmm, I thought that too, but it does not work.
Now, after testing again, it does no work for elm, but works otherwise:

[/tmp] martin@rumolt > echo $LANG
[/tmp] martin@rumolt > cat mru
cat: mru: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
[/tmp] martin@rumolt >

But elm still does not send mails with 8 bit chars in ISO-8859-1 coding,
and, even worse, it does not display them!

I think I'll have to revert to a manual installed elm for now; someone
please fix the pkg. (Maybe time to learn something about this stuff and
submit patches ;-)
