I use en_US.UTF-8
The format is (two letter language code)_(two letter country
code).(encoding), so pt_EN isn't valid; EN isn't the country code of a
Portuguese-speaking country (I'm oversimplifying slightly).

They've done a fair amount of work to get various input methods
working; I can't easily point you to specific changes they've made in
the code, but there are some.

It's probably not the only thing, but it's probably the easiest thing,

Tell me your keymap/input method, and I'll come up with a minimal set
of steps for Spanish/Portuguese support and update the wiki this
evening.  You shouldn't need to bother with freetype, and definitely
don't need to bother with cyrillic fonts.
