I'm not sure how language-env used the encoding, but it probably would be
even better if it would determine the actual default locale installed on
This can be done (even when run in a chroot or something) by:
- reading the default locale from /etc/default/locale
- maybe check that that locale is available
- run 'LC_ALL=$LOCALE chroot /target locale charmap'
The result of the last command is the encoding.
