Subject: ps.map sets encoding to iso-8859-1

Platform: GNU/Linux/x86
grass obtained from: CVS
grass binary for platform: Compiled from Sources
GRASS Version: cvs_head_20060921

On line 92 of ps/ps.map/prolog.ps the encoding is set to ISOLatin1Encoding.

If I understand correctly (and some testing confirms this) this means that the instructions file for ps.map has to be encoded in iso-8859-1 (or similar) to work, i.e. to be able to print accented characters. If you are in a UTF-8 environment, ps.map creates a ps file which doesn't show correct accented characters be it in iso or in utf.

Is there any reason why ps.map hardcodes the encoding ? Is it possible to automatically use the users encoding ?
