Sorry for the terseness.  I'm just learning the protocol for
submitting patches here.  I should have included this diff instead:

diff --git a/modules/localcharset b/modules/localcharset
index 8d01706..f2c20b4 100644

As Paul said, yes, it is in modules/localcharset.

Sadly I can't reproduce the failure myself.  (It may be a lack of
understanding on my part).  This patch appeared in the list of patches
packaged with the FreeBSD port of Augeas (which depends on gnulib).
I'm not the maintainer of Augeas or the port, but I'm trying to
upstream things to make it work smoother in the future.  I may be
overstepping boundaries here.  That said, I'd appreciate the inclusion
of the patch.
