encoding of lisp/language/devan-util.el

I cannot make bootstrap, because devan-util.el gives me a parse error
(parenthesis missing).  When I open the file, and move down to defvar
dev-char-glyph, I can see the problem:  the cdr of the second element
in the alist is corrupt (using \e for escape): "\e$,4 K")\e(B" -- the
quote after the K closes the string, etc.

Obviously the file is not being decoded correctly.  Calling M-x
describe-coding-system returns:

Coding system for saving this buffer:
  J -- iso-2022-7bit-unix
Default coding system (for new files):
  1 -- iso-latin-1 (alias: iso-8859-1 latin-1)

This looks ok.  What is the problem, then?

At first I thought this is due to my locale:  LANG=en_US.ISO-8859-1
But even when I export LANG=C and use emacs -q the problem persists.
