dpkg in unstable had a bug that will break installation of certain
packages under Chinese locale (at least under zh_CN.GB2312). If it is
the bug you see, set your LC_CTYPE to none "export LC_CTYPE=" and try
again. If still won't work, I don't know then.

apt-get cannot do that, but you can use dpkg --set-selections as:
 echo "package hold" |dpkg --set-selections
The format is the same as 'dpkg --get-selections' man dpkg

Maybe KDE reads its own config file for locale setting. ~/.kdexxx? I don't
use kde. read its manual.

Just download the file and append it to your local 
/var/spool/mail/username or use .forward to forward when 
the mail arrived. I don't any utilities will do this
automatically. Most likely a few lines of script.
