So it seems the utf-8 locale doesn't only use the iso8859-1 charset but
specifies to fail if it's missing.  That's OK.  Now why does your libXt
think you don't have any font that covers iso8859-1?  Even if you don't have
any iso8859-1 font, an iso10646-1 font should do the trick since it also
covers iso8859-1.

And your xlsfonts showed you have

Can you check the xfs log (is there such a thing?), see if it complains
about something?
What does

     xterm -fn -adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal--12-120-75-75-p-67-iso8859-1

do and/or say?
