There is a sed in Comment #2, but I'd rather drop both this sed and the
fonts.alias sed because they are not 100% correct for some people (or at
least mark that as an approximate solution that may or may not work). I
think it's sufficient to clearly specify the goal of the changes (e.g.,
"make sure that GDM chooses non-UTF-8 locales when selecting a non-default
language from the menu", "ensure that the fonts with the correct encoding
are used for "fixed", "variable", "10x20" and similar aliases") and tell
the reader to modify the relevant files manually, like this is done in the
original report.
