Your problem is caused by the fact that Microsoft uses a non POSIX
compliant character coding method (UCS-2) instead of UTF-8.
Making mkisofs able to re-code the file names into Microsofts (non standard)
would either cause mkisofs to grup up to many megabytes (which I don't like
because this is something that most users don't need) or to convert mkisofs
to be able to use iconv.
Unfortunately, adding autoconf support for iconv into the Schily makefile system
is nothing that makes sense with cdrtools current beta state. It could break
more than it may help.
