Created attachment 168523 [details]

Arcanist does support encodings other than utf-8, but it needs mbstring php extension for this, otherwise an attempt to use --encoding argument will lead to an error:

% arc diff --encoding koi8-r --update D5713 ru_RU.KOI8-R/books/handbook/x11/chapter.xml
No lint engine configured for this project.

No unit test engine is configured for this project.
Attempting to convert a string encoding from 'koi8-r' to 'UTF-8', but the 'mbstring' PHP extension is not available. Install mbstring to work with encodings other than UTF-8.
(Run with `--trace` for a full exception trace.)

To support this, add an optional dependency on mbstring for arcanist. Enable it by default, since it's crucial for working with localized FreeBSD documentation, which still uses obsolete 8 bit locales.
