I am afraid the problem isn't solved :-(

When I use your proposal I never see the french characters and john are not able
to find the right password.

I think the real problem is the default compile-time in US-ASCII characters.

To generate the french.chr I put in john.pot the french character like,


and then I launch the generation,

john --make-charset=french.chr

but then I never see this characters when john try to gues.

I think john always translate the 8bits code in US-ASCII characters and destroy
the information introduced in john.pot
