This does not help in my case. I can view UTF-8 encoded text, can
input localized text using LEIM, but cannot input any symbol using
XFree86's XKB. Looks like Emacs ignores my keystrokes.
I can, however, input localized text using XKB in Mozilla 1.0

I have:
export LANG="C"
export LC_CTYPE="en_GB.UTF-8"
set in my ~/.profile file.

GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i386--freebsd, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)

XFree86 Version 4.2.0 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)
Release Date: 18 January 2002

FreeBSD oak.pohoyda.family 4.5-RC3 FreeBSD 4.5-RC3 #18: Mon Sep 30

What could be the problem?
