Few day ago I asked [1] build js without UTF-8 C strings. But before 
that was opposite request.
As acceptable solution found update to recent version, starting from 
1.8.0-rc1 [2]. But it have also known bugs and we move to 1.8.5 version 
from Firefox 4.0 [3] mercurial repository.
1.8 version introduce runtime UTF-8 support [4]. So, to use new version 
of js with UTF8 C strings support not enough to just rebuild and relink. 
Instead you need patch (or better ask upstream to do that) you software 
to add call function JS_SetCStringsAreUTF8. See [4] for more details.

I plan build it today (I have still some troubles in it) and push in 
rawhide in middle of next week. Also in future it is suggested for F15
