Second try: Problems with german localization of xfree86 4.4.0


maybe I made a mistake in my first two messages so I try it again.

First my System is a Power Mac G4 with Mac OS X 10.3.2 and all the 
latest patches, fink Package manager version: 0.19.1, Distribution 
version: 0.6.2.cvs and Xfree86 4.4.0 installed via fink, also gnome 
2.4.1-2 via fink with metacity as windowmanager. 

Two days ago fink installed Xfree86 4.4.0 on my system and 
everything seemed to run fine on a first glance but a second one 
showed two big errors.

First error I am not longer able to use the EuroSign and at Symbol 
within OpenOffice.org1.1.1RC1 and abiword and gedit etc, only 
within terminal and gnome-terminal and rxvt this is possibel. I 
first thought that maybe this is a gnome error and used twm and 
englightenment, both not installed via fink, and there the same 
error. I simply can not use the EuroSing and at Symbol along with 
the keycombos for è and é etc. Since the german.keymapping is gone 
in Panther the system keyboard is used and this was just fine in 
RC1, while RC3 didn't build right, see Bug 1182. 

When launching soffice via command line this message ist displayed. 

I18N: Operating system doesn't support locale ""

Second error is somewhat related to the first one. Files and Names 
containing the special chars mentioned above are not shown or show 
wired chars or cause a crash of the xterm when using Xfree86 4.4.0. 
I tried it again with gnome's Metacity, englightenment and twm. The 
first error that occures when a new xterm is launched, equal which 
windowmanager is used is this:

Warning: could not change ownership of tty -- pty is insecure!

Here is the output when X is launched via terminal:

I thought that  maybe the problem in some way is fink related but 
the original sources show the same behaviour. I downloaded them and 
compiled them for myself. I haven't tried the binaries for darwin 
7.x but I guess they show the same behviour or are they compiled 
with special flags? 

I also tried various ways of setting the LANG variable as you can 
see here in my .profile.

. /sw/bin/init.sh
alias daily='sudo /etc/daily'
alias weekly='sudo /etc/weekly'
alias monthly='sudo /etc/monthly'
alias tunnel='ssh -2 -x -L 2401:localhost:2401 
# alias ls='ls -v  -G'
alias unset_ooo='unset LD_SEG_ADDR_TABLE LD_PREBIND 
LANG=de_DE; export LANG
# export LANG=de_DE
# export LC_ALL=de_DE
unset LC_ALL


When exclude the LANG=de_DE, export LANG line wiht an # the second 
error dissapears. I can but still I cannot use @, EuroSign etc and 
all is english again and that never caused any problems. 

Need I recompile gnome, metacity, englightenment or is the error 
another one.

Since I use Mac OS X I have no Xfre86.log. So please tell me what 
further informations you need and where I can find them. I can send 
you my .xinitrc if necessary or the general log file of Mac OS X if 
it helps. 

I understand that my errors may not occure with english Xfree 4.4.0 
on Macintosh but I am german nativ and I need an EuroSign and at 
Symbol here on my mac and maybe french and other european languages 
are effected too.
