[SM-Users] Which fonts support utf8 under X?

I like using terminus font, but somehow it doesn't support utf8. When
using gvim (I compiled it against lesstif, but with openmotif is the
same as well as with gtk+2, since I tried all, the best result is with
openmotif, which doesn't die after the warning), I get:
Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset
Vim: Caught deadly signal SEGV
This when I have LANG set as en_US.utf8. When I have it set to
en_US.iso88591 I don't get the error. The font I'm using is:
I'm hoping I could use terminus font with en_US.utf8, although it
doesn't seem possible. Notice I see several fonts already compiled
% xlsfonts | grep -E 'iso8859-1' | wc -l
But I don't see anything already compiled for utf8:
% xlsfonts | grep -Ei 'utf' | wc -l
Is there a way to make available fonts support en_US.utf8 language?
Any suggestions? Please notice plain vim under xterm/aterm/mrxvt has
no problem at all.
