UTF-8 support in nano

It appears that nano (one of the editors installed by default) has been
compiled without UTF-8 support (this is based on  and that it is
linked to libncurses instead of libncursesw, which  says it needs).
For me, this is rather annoying, as I need that support for some of the
letters in my native language, and without it, nano behaves oddly around
those letters (since the terminal does support UTF-8).
Seeing as libncursesw is installed anyway, can this be changed so nano
is built with UTF-8 support?
