I'm running 6.0-BETA1 and recompiled all the ports installed in system.
I just ran
setenv LC_CTYPE zh_CN.GB2312
setenv XMODIFIERS @im=fcitx
and ran some applications like emacs, mlterm, aterm... they all worked for me.
Then I tried to set the LC_CTYPE to zh_CN.GBK, the XIM still working. Only
the characters can't be displayed correct, since I only have the X core fonts
installed. And I didn't installed misc/localedata.
Maybe you can have a try to recompile the applications which you want to
use XIM with?
