No. I think we would have to arrange that Japanese locales get a copy
of kon2 installed and run base-config inside it.
The trouble with using bterm is that it requires everything to be in
UTF-8. At the moment at least, this isn't typically the case for latin
languages. In the closed world of dbootstrap it's no problem to recode
all the strings while building the boot-floppies, but at the time
base-config runs the strings will be coming directly from random
packages. I had the impression that even with Japanese most strings
were still coded in EUC-JP rather than Unicode, but maybe I was wrong
