Support for swedish characters

I discovered that openLdap 2.1.22 refuses to perform operations on entries with DN containg swedish characters åäöÅÄÖé,è,È,É. This probably goes for all attributetypes and values aswell. It is absolutely necessary to be able to use swedish characters in our LDAP support.

I checked the list archives and some questions concerning this matter could be found, but no configuration-wise answers...only recommendations to use perl-skript on ldif files to convert foreign characters to UTF8 BEFORE using openldap.
This is not possible for our support.

Can openLdap 2.1.22 be configured to accept additional characters?

If not, is it safe to remove the controlfunctions in UTF8.c or getDn.c
for example:
cl = LDAP_UTF8_CHARLEN2( p, cl ); // (p is char to control, cl is previous result value)
replaced by
to force openldap to accept these characers?
( It is probably needed to do additional changes!)

Other options?

Greatful for any help and/or hints!
