In rxvt, the support of Japanese cannot be merged for another reason.

rxvt supports kanji(Japanese), big5(Chinese), gb(Chinese), greek keybord.
But, these features conflict(see src/rxvt.h). Only one feature can be used
at the same time.

The solution,
	1. Add options mk.conf, as RXVT_USE_FEATURE= kanji,big5,gb,greek.

	2. Make directory as japanese/rxvt,chinese/rxvt-big5,
	   MASTERDIR=../../x11/rxvt, CONFIGURE_ARGS+= --enable-kanji,
	   PKGNAME=ja-rxvt-2.6.0 , etc.

1. has problem about method of automatic making binary packages.
'make package' makes only 'rxvt-2.6.0' package.
'ja-rxvt-2.6.0', 'zh-rxvt-big5-2.6.0', 'zh-rxvt-bg-2.6.0', 'el-rxvt-2.6.0'
are not made by current

2. multiplies package directories.

Any ideas?
