No, I just wasn't sure what the deal was with including files like that
in emacs.c since there's quite a lot in it. If that's an acceptable way
to do it then I'd be happy to do so.

I don't know what that means, but I'll look into it.

The problem is that Emacs itself doesn't know what the correct locale is
and therefore sets various encodings and things to "nil". As far as I
can tell process-environment is only for sub-processes, which doesn't
solve this particular problem.
