The reference scanner, currently written in C++, traverses whole
directory trees.  Being C++ it treats file names as byte arrays so it
doesn’t matter what the file name encoding is.

Note also that the reference scanner only looks for “xyz…-foo”; what
comes before and after doesn’t matter.  So for example if you have
“/gnu/store/xyz…-foo/à”, what’s important is the “xyz…-foo” bit.

This is all happening in libstore/references.cc (which is surprisingly
small) and in (guix build graft) for the grafting part, which Mark wrote
a while back.
