I cannot build the source from CVS, the error was:

-DHAVE_CONFIG_H -Demacs -I. -I../src -I/mnt/hda11/tmp/emacs/lwlib

Just in case, I'm running GNU/Linux-2.4.18-rc4, XFree-4.2.0.

Though, I successfully built Emacs-21.2 with vntelex.el (copied from
CVS) and can type "Vietnamese" characters with telex input method.
However, Emacs pop ups the following message when saving the buffer to
| These default coding systems were tried:
|   vietnamese-viscii-unix
| However, none of them safely encodes the target text.
| ...
and it prompts for utf-16-le-unix as the default coding system.

I don't really understand how MULE works, but I guess Werner would use
a wrong charset (It seems ISO-8859-? rather than
vietnamese-lower/upper--these character sets share many accent
characters) for translation characters in `quail-define-rules'.  I
re-edited the table and the problem has gone. Below is the changes.
