Why ?
Mine seems to work fine without that one...
Instead I have
set send_charset="us-ascii:iso-8859-1:iso-8859-15:iso-2022-jp:utf-8"
(Which means on send mutt will pick the best match on sending mails,
e.g. us-ascii for ascii only, iso-8859-1 for german, iso-8859-15
for german with euro symbol, iso-2022-jp for japanese and utf-8 for
anything that doesn't fit in the others...)

Well, it rather is the exception that you don't have to set LANG (or
rather LC_CTYPE) for kterm. For everything else you should always set
LC_CTYPE properly (or LANG, I usually just set LC_CTYPE, because I still
want to have english messages...)
