This patch touches quotearg.c, which comes from gnulib. Your comment indicates
bugs in the wide character support of that platform. Gnulib attempts to work
around all such issues.

Do you know what goes wrong? Do you have a small test program?

If not, then the first step in understanding the bugs should be to create
a testdir from the selected parts of gnulib

  $ gnulib-tool --create-testdir --with-tests --dir=/tmp/testdir \
    btowc mbrlen mbrtowc mbscasecmp mbscasestr mbschr mbscspn mbsinit mbslen \
    mbsncasecmp mbsnlen mbsnrtowcs mbspbrk mbspcasecmp mbsrchr mbsrtowcs \
    mbssep mbsspn mbsstr mbstok_r mbswidth mbtowc wcrtomb wcsnrtombs wcsrtombs \
    wctob wctomb

and on your machine run

  $ ./configure
  $ make
  $ make check

and send us the log files of these three commands, plus config.log and
