Ok, I added it (and GCCS) to my documentation 'Introduction to I18N'.

I found glibc 2.2 supports GB18030.  It has 
/usr/share/i18n/charmaps/GB18030.gz as an definition of GB18030.
(It is amazing that it covers not only ideograms but also various
characters in the world, including Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, Hebrew,
Arab, Thai, Armenian, and so on.)

However, it seems that XFree86 doesn't support GB18030 yet.
I am afraid that XFree86 might be banned in China...
