BYTE is lost here in the case it is not EOF.

It may be best to move the (= count n) case right before the recursive
call below.

In practice this discards LF even if it’s not following CR; that’s
probably a good enough approximation, but an XXX comment would be

Looks good!  Could you make a patch that does that, along with adding a
test or two in tests/utils.scm?

Thank you!
