I did not know much about luit. cocot came from cygwin environment.
cocot has options: (roughtly translate)
-o LOGFILE output log which is converting encoding before.
-a log turn append mode. This option must use with -o option.
-t TERM_CODE Terminal encoding. Default is CP932(Japanse Microsoft encoding
and ms defined characters)
-p PROC_CODE Command process encoding Default is EUC-JP
-i Ignore ISO-2022-JP escape sequence
-n Do not convert encoding
(Same act as script(1) and -o option)
-h show help message.
-v show version.

cocot can define terminal encoding and process encoding. It seems to me
that cocot can help you. But I have never done it actually. I am
sorry that I can not give you proven infomation.
