Yep.  I got everything working as per Daniel's suggestion but had to
leave out the LC_CTYPE variable (otherwise everything was in English and
I couldn't enter Japanese input mode).

I tried getting SCIM working w/o luck though.  I've never used UIM
before.  It seems to work fine, but I wish it had some kind of
notification when I've entered Japanese input mode.  Am I missing
something?  SCIM has a nice bar that shows up as soon as you Shift-space.
