I can display gb2312 (Simplified Chinese) with:
./xterm -fw "-arphic-ar pl sungtil gb-bold-r-normal--0-160-0-0-c-0-iso10646-1" -u8 -lc -fn "-*-r-*150-iso8859-1" -fx "-arphic-ar pl sungtil gb-bold-r-normal--0-160-0-0-c-0-iso10646-1" &

But it won't activite the chinese input method I'm using (chinput). I have
XMODIFIERS=@im=Chinput from my environment. And there is no way to specify
a input method at xterm's command line (There should be one for user's

So there are XIM initialization bugs in xterm's i18n patch.
