I don't know anything about Chinese support in general.  But with
Emacs, it was very easy.

I compiled and installed Emacs and I also installed some Chinese
fonts.  (The GNU intlfonts package, available from, is a
good starting point.)

Then I typed M-x view-hello-file RET.  This showed me some Chinese
(and Japanese, and Korean) characters.  If you see empty boxes
instead of the Chinese characters, then some fonts are missing.

Then I typed C-\ chinese-py RET to select a Pinyin input method.

Then I typed nihao and saw two Chinese characters.
