FreeBSD green.tandem.local 9.0-STABLE FreeBSD 9.0-STABLE #1 r231573: Mon Feb 13 17:25:48 EET 2012 arcade at green.tandem.local:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/MINIMAL_4BSD amd64
Some ports like russian/fortune-bashorgru install two versions of fortunes: one in KOI8-R encoding and one in UTF-8. the fortune intself can't recode data inplace, so there's a possibility to.
1. Provide UTF-8 data.
2. Recode fortune output.
I personally prefer to have original files in UTF-8 and recode them to any locale when needed. Can I adjust this port to contain not only KOI8-R version but a UTF-8 one too?
I'll postpone this for now. In one week if maintainer wouldn't come out I'll try to compose a patch.
