I don't think it's a Gnulib issue.  The problem is that on Windows,
the implicit call at the beginning of Wget

  setlocale (LC_ALL, "C");

is not good enough to work in multibyte locales of the Far East,
because the Windows runtime assumes a single-byte locale after that
call.  And since Wget happens to need to display text and create files
with non-ASCII characters, it gets hit more than other programs.

The proposed solution is to add a special call to setlocale which gets
this right on Windows.
