Lots of tests were failing on this loan machine:

$ system_profiler SPSoftwareDataType

    System Software Overview:

      System Version: Mac OS X 10.6.8 (10K549)
      Kernel Version: Darwin 10.8.0
      Boot Volume: Macintosh HD
      Boot Mode: Normal
      Computer Name: --------------
      User Name: ------------------
      Secure Virtual Memory: Not Enabled
      64-bit Kernel and Extensions: No
      Time since boot: 22 days 16:41

This was due to quotes being generated as the fancy curly variety,
which in turn was due to locale_charset() returning "UTF-8",
which in turn was due to nl_langinfo() returning "US-ASCII".
This happens for "C" or any unknown charset?

The proposed gnulib patch avoids the issue for me.
