Yoshiki did this last week, it is in the Unix subversion trunk.

IIRC the problem on the Mac is not in the VM, but that the truetype  
fonts in the image do only cover the latin1 range whereas cyrillic  
and other characters are discarded on input. There is a hack to fix  


Not sure if later images have a similar fix. The Freetype support  
would solve the problem too.
