OUTPUT_CHARSET is not set for Japanese mode

Since OUTPUT_CHARSET=EUC-JP is not set in env,
some Japanese help can't be displayed on console or gnome-terminal.
such as gpg --help.
This problem should be fixed in Anaconda, shouldn't it?
Applications that output characters in a locale that isn't POSIX *must* call
So, you're saying this is an app problem and not an initscripts problem?
absolutely. If you set OUTPUT_CHARSET this will override the charset used in an
application that uses setlocale() properly. This means that if you set
OUTPUT_CHARSET to EUC-JP and then run a properly written program using
LANG=de_DE it will not display properly.
OK, assigning to gpg.
