It still does. That's one of several reasons why --with-mule _still
defaults to_ *no*. Jamie chose to go with a vendor which doesn't offer
a non-mule build (maybe you have some pull with them ;-). He chooses
not to build XEmacs himself.
Does it have anything to do with the fact that RedHat 8 uses UTF-8 by
default ? For example, all my LC_* variables had en_UTF-8. I switched them
all using LC_ALL=C as
1. Most old Motif based applications like Acroread get confused.
2. man under XEmacs and on the command-line looked broken.
2. I could care less about non iso8859-1.
Maybe setting LC_ALL=C might help for some applications. Since I broke down
and compiled my own version of XEmacs with non-mule, I don't know if it
will help in Mule builds.
