What version of Emacs is that?

In any case, I suggest to compare the values of these environment
variables on the systems that work and the one which doesn't: LC_ALL,
LC_MESSAGES, LC_CTYPE, and LANG; and the values of the variable
locale-coding-system inside Emacs.  That should give you a hint about
what's going on.
