Assuming competent internationalization[1], the English catalog should
always be available as the hard-coded default, and the Japanese will
be invoked by setting LANG to a ja locale.  Vine Linux being
advertised for its Japan localization, it seems logical to guess at
LANG=ja right off the bat.

Further, the fact that he's getting mojibake indicates that Japanese
_is_ being sent to the display, and therefore LANG=ja, but the display
can't handle it.  Thus my suggestion to get kon (fixing the display)
and Dmytro's to use LANG=C (dumbing down the output so the display can
handle it).  Hector, of course, has already demonstrated his ability
to understand English by posting to this list, no interface
incompatibility there.

Now, now, Kayote-chan, ochitsukinasai.

Nobody is talking about X, here, are we:

[1]  Always a stretch, unfortunately.  Especially so for Japanese.  :-(
