[R] umlauts in a plot label in X11

After I have found out that I have to tell ess-mode in emacs to use an 
iso-latin<n> encoding scheme to communicate with the R subprocess, 
including umlauts in labels works, at least for writing to postscript.
Only the X11-display still makes trouble: It uses a font that has some 
russian characters in the position of the umlauts in latin-1/9.

Is there a way to tell R to use a font that fits to the current locale?

Yours, Florian Hars.
