/usr/X11R6/bin/uxterm is just a shell script, which switches LC_CTYPE
to an UTF-8 locale and starts xterm in UTF-8 mode.

I.e. if you are running with LANG=ja_JP.eucJP, this script will do

LC_CTYPE=ja_JP.UTF-8 xterm -class UXTerm -title 'uxterm' -u8

This will work on XFree86-4.1.0 as well. The '-u8' option is
superfluous for quite some time already, xterm will set it
automatically when the locale charmap is UTF-8.
