I expect the latest version to work, but if it doesn't...

I would try --code-page=1257 instead of --charset

A quick check seems to show that --code-page still works, but if it
doesn't then since it fails with qlandkartegt and that is open-source
we should be able to work out what is going wrong.

I would not expect that the lack of a sort/cp1257.txt file would
affect anything that worked before, since there has never been any
special support for sorting names written with 1257 characters.
