I have to be able to use Norwegian letters, can, see/write them both in
Windows and on TTY and pts CLIs.

Make sure you have:

display charset = ISO-8859-1 (or -15 if you want to write EURO signs)
dos charset = 850

in [global].

If you don't have anything for "unix charset", you'll get UTF-8, which
is what you need.
