(There's a patch, but until it is has been applied, this should *not* be
regarded as "fixed-upstream".)

However, I can reproduce the bug with:

$ env -u LC_CTYPE LANG=C /usr/libexec/gnome-terminal-server
Non UTF-8 locale (ANSI_X3.4-1968) is not supported!

It seems that the fact that systemd was started with UTF-8 locales
mattered (even though I changed /etc/default/locale afterwards).

If the patch is not accepted, an alternate solution might be to
force C.UTF-8 locales somewhere in
"/usr/lib/systemd/user/gnome-terminal-server.service" and/or
