Glibc-2.2 already have GB18030 locale.  Thus, properly internationalized
softwares will work well with GB18030 under LANG=zh_CN.GB18030 locale.
However, unfortunately, not many softwares are internationalized yet.
Please refer "Introduction to I18N" in Debian Documentation Project.
This document has hints to internationalize softwares.

XFree86 also need GB18030 locale, which is not supported yet.
Please ask at i18n@xfree86.org mailing list  (I know you are
subscribing to the list:-)
