Then my guessing was correct, but in this case there
is a better solution.  Instead  of  relying  on  the
value of LANG, FP-IDE should directly check the con-
sole mode. This can be  done  using  the  'kbd_mode'
command. If the mode reported is UTF-8, then use the
translation table, otherwise assume CP437.

At least, this will make it more reliable with UTF-8
