My Linux CUPS installation prints UTF-8 text pretty well (the Thai
Braille and Amharic and the final Hello World failed on the classic UTF-8
test text), it has the FreeMono fonts embedded in the CUPS directories.

It looks like CUPS works by using an internal texttopdf converter
and feeding to to pdftops.
Installing cups-filters (quite a small package) makes this work
cupsfilter Documents/UTF-8-demo.txt > t.ps
The resultant file views and prints fine.
