This has been fixed in ELinks 0.12.GIT if you configure
--enable-utf-8 and select UTF-8 as the charset for the terminal
(different from the UTF-8 I/O option available in prior versions).

Bug 822 - Should enable CONFIG_UTF8 by default (after it's safe)

unfortunately the response isn't available in mailing list archive.
