Definitely. I have the same problem with vt and de_DE.ISO8859-1
if I want to use the Umlauts =F6 =E4 =FC =D6 =C4 =DC and Eszett =DF. This is
one of the cases where vt cannot do what sc could do for decades.

Maybe a workaround for you is this:

Set fr_FR.UTF-8 and check if you get the correct accents on
the vowels (or just "escaped unprintable" representation).

However, according to _my_ documentation the setting does not
have a 2nd "-" in it, not fr_FR.ISO-8859-1, but fr_FR.ISO8859-1
(only one "-") should be used. Maybe you can try this as well?
