I'm ignorant of all this. What do child processes of Emacs need these
variables for? Can you give me one example of something I might want to
run inside an emacs M-x shell buffer that needs to know EMACSDATA? It's
not set in shells spawned by a GNU/Linux build.

Also, don't you get a clear error about the charsets directory not being
found if EMACSDATA is wrong (from init_charset), rather than a failue to
load some particular charset? Which makes me think this is probably not
the problem the OP was having anyway...
