You might want to apply the rest of the patches in:
(You already applied the mklocal.patch so don't apply that)

Also you need a terminal that is utf8 capable and a font
and then still the implementation is not complete.

I use rxvt-unicode:
(if you want to compile it yourself with a world witjh all patches remove the
BROCKEN line in the Makefile)

If you could try the rest of the patches and report back, that would be cool.

What did happen with ls before any patches?
How can i repeat the problem case ?
