Sorry, I am not a programmer, not able to compile your attached tarball sorces. All I can -- to download stable version WGet for windows from GNU site at http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/wget.htm

If you send me test binary version WGet for windows -- I can report if it supports localized console output correctly.

I am using Russian localized version of Windows.
Wget tries to enjoy me with Russian localized strings (I've downloaded version 1.11.4 of it from official Wget site). But unfortunately, it writes to console in Russian Win1251 codepage, it is BAD, because default windows russian console codepage is DOS866.
Please, convert every string passed to console to 866 codepage using Windows AnsiToOEM() function -- it will help to resolve similar problems for other languages too.
