Follow-up Comment #5, bug #49386 (project octave):

I had a look at Markus patch  in comment #1. If I remember correctly the
command setCodecForCStrings is obsolete in qt5. So this patch might break
building mxe-octave with qt5.

My patch in bug #49118 comment #26 adds the very same code line to
octave-gui.cc, but wraps it in "#if defined (HAVE_QT4)".

If I find the time I will take any of those setCodecForCStrings patches and
cross-build mxe-octave with qt4. Am a right that the following should then be
* display utf-8 characters (like in the demo script testing_utf8.m) in the GUI
command window (bug #43099).
* create a string variable with a utf8 russian letter as content (this bug
report) and have a look at it in the variable explorer. 
* create a uigetfile window with a utf8 russion letter in the title string
(this bug report).
