Hmm.  Is the dependency on the locale necessary?

Well, I have a Latin-1 locale, and the Unicode menus from AUCTeX math
input mode don't look well in there.  GTK+, in contrast, has no
problems with showing them.

Is there a possibility for Emacs to figure out just what locales would
be supported for fonts, and use utf-8 if possible?
