Gvim should handle Unicode, either graphically or in a terminal.
As far as I can make out, font selection would be a lot easier in the
Gtk2 version (editors/vim-gtk2) than the XAW version (vim-xaw).
From :help unicode :
Vim has comprehensive UTF-8 support. It appears to work in:
- xterm with utf-8 support enabled
- Athena, Motif and GTK GUI
- MS-Windows GUI
