Well, that was easy to accommodate; after seeing on 
http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/jena-dev/message/43378 that ARQ 2.8.3 
adds support for STRLANG and realizing that although I was using ARQ 
2.8.2 I had apparently installed 2.8.3 a month ago, all I had to do was 
reset my ARQROOT to point to 2.8.3. Problem solved.

Thanks Andy!
