Are you actually on some ancient machine not supporting UTF-8? If not, I 
think you might have derailed here. With a terminal correctly set to 
UTF-8, the Jumbo defaults should work for most situations. Going 
backwards in time will only make things worse.

If you are indeed on a machine not supporting UTF-8, just change a few 
of the config defaults (I can work out which if you give me some time) 
and you should be set.
