Ja_JP.UTF-8 is supported since nkf 2.0 it. 
Therefore, mknmz can process the document of the ja_JP.UTF-8 encoding. 

However, it is a clear mistake to specify ja_JP.UTF-8 for 
--indexing-lang option. 

Because, --indexing-lang option doesn't specify the encoding of the 
handled document. 

It is necessary to specify ja_JP.eucjp for --indexing-lang option. 
(for UNIX)
