And what about X ? How do you set up an xterm to display Japanese
characters? How do you configure emacs to be able to write with
right-to-left direction? There is a lot of stuff to configure. Picking out
one thing to include in the book doesn't make sense. I'd rather see a
comprehensive hint or a whole chapter in the BLFS book about it. That
would be a lot more useful.

You can type foreign characters in bash even with setting input-meta to
on? That's strange. Setting LANG and LC_ALL to de_DE doesn't allow me to
type ä in bash.

Yes and they start daemons like sshd in their boot scripts, too. This is
all beyond the scope of the LFS book. It would be appropriate for the BLFS
