I haven't worked with this before, but what does "need the webserver to
understand French characters in filenames" mean exactly?  More details
are needed, particularly technical ones.  How is Apache "not working"
with French characters in filenames?

HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE is an environment variable, and therefore you
should probably look at the mod_env module (comes with Apache), but I
make no promises that it will solve your problem (because more technical
details are needed).


Alternately, given your need for multi-language support, I would
strongly recommend learning about mod_negotiation and MultiViews.  Read
both documents:
