      I hesitate removing the Hangul support without knowing for sure that it
      is not needed. Browsing through the messages I do see remarks that it
      might still be useful to a few people.

      Perhaps the Hangul support can be changed to also work for UTF-8?

      The compilation error is easy to fix: Don't define FEAT_XFONTSET when
      using GTK2.
