Ahh didn't see that one.

Your server is configured for 7 bit ASCII, which isn't particularly 
useful outside the mainland US (I'm surprised a modern linux distro 
would use that as the default.. most use UTF8 or at least give a 
selection of ISO8859 codepages on install).

You can override the locale on the server in the /etc/cvsnt/PServer, but 
in that case where you're storing multilingual files regularly it'd be 
better to change the codepage that the whole server is running under to 
something that understands that (no idea how you'd do that under gentoo
