I installed the xdm package from pkgsrc.
I want my locale to be en_US.UTF-8 so that I can use texts that are
written in my native language.
Where do I set this up, system-wide?
There is no option in xdm to select language.
The X session does not read /etc/profile. My shells inside the terminal
do but the terminal does not know about utf-8 because the terminal process
itself is not started in any sane environment.
There is no ENV script the X session scripts supplied use, certainly
not one that would also be used for terminal logins.
log in through xdm
Provide and document some way to set up environment for X and shell
