  Yes, exactly that.  When I run the testcases at the command line and pipe
stderr into "od -c", I can see where I get multibyte characters instead of
apostrophes.  Setting LC_ALL and LANG to C.CP437 gets me genuine apostrophes
instead of fancy quotes at the command line, although I haven't figured out
how to get the testsuite to DTRT yet.

  Ah, that's funny.  I thought I had tried both "C.ASCII" and "C.US-ASCII" and
neither of them worked, but now I see that plain old "ASCII" does indeed work
just fine.  Must have fat-fingered something.  (Ah, thanks history buffer!  I
see I managed to use a lower-case 'c'!)  Mystery solved.
