Since japanese console n frame buffer device have not developped
enoughly, we may have to use kon2 & konfont for potato.

locale-ja, kon2 / konfont, and man-db with the feature of
display for Japanese manpages (we must express that there are strong needs 
the patch applied man-db package if the man-db package would not use the
ukai's patch. Or we must provide separate man-db-ja package in potato)

Off course, manpages-ja should be included.

I prefer skkinput (with canna).

I uploaded jvim. Since the lisence problem is cleared,
the next revision of package should be installed into main of potato.

I currently prefer emacs, but I know there are much needs of xemacs.

These two should be included Base for JP Selection, I think.

It may be the problem of tcl/tk, perhaps you should not blame at 
the original XFree86 code. (the way of linking libraries of package 
may be the key to solve the problem,,,)

man-db-ja can be merged into man-db if the ukai's patch is 
applied to man-db. I hope that.

How about ghostscript-ja ?
