Ok, I found OUTPUT_CHARSET is no more needed if I want EUC-JP
encoding.  Thank you, I will remove the settings from language-env

I wrote the .bashrc script so that it works only for a few environments
which I often use.  I rarely use kterm in SJIS mode.

I didn't thought of arbitrary subset of ISO2022, like kterm supports.
(You are talking about 'encoding', not 'character set', by your word
'charset', aren't you?  Information on character set is not useful,
besides arbitrary subset of ISO2022.)

Imagine that kterm in EUC mode sets:
  TERM_ISO2022SETS=JISX0208 JISX0201 ISO8859-1  (according to font setting)
Xterm sets:
  TERM_ISO2022SETS=  (empty)
Xterm in UTF-8 mode sets:
  TERM_ISO2022SETS=  (empty)
