utf8, macos x, and fmt

Macos x has an old version of fmt (ca. 1993 according to the man page). When applied to UTF8 text (via |fmt), everything other than the ascii characters seem simply to be dropped. Does anyone have an idea where a UTF8-enabled version of fmt might be found? (As I'm not much of a programmer, I would prefer one that would compile on the mac without too much work.)

Many thanks.
