Yes, that is true. (pdf)tex does not produce utf8 encoded log files
by default.
tex itself uses anyway the ^^ output method consistently in the log
file, so no encoding problem (all is ascii)
FOr pdftex (and thus also latex etc) I guess you need to use 
either -translate-file or something else, but I am not sure about it.

Other than that, as Markus wrote, these are all questions related to 
TeX in general and will apply to every distribution of TeX and related

TORONTO (n.) Generic term for anything which comes out of a gush
despite all your careful efforts to let it out gently, e.g. flour into
a white sauce, tomato ketchup on to fried fish, sperm into a human
being, etc.
