Should the uni-*.el files be checked in as binary? They don't appear to be utf-8 as the coding tag at the bottom claims.

No, they encode (a kind of) binary data using Unicode
character codes.  I used that format to minimize the file

Binary data is still binary data after it has been utf-8 encoded. And wouldn't encoding it make the file size bigger, as now all bytes with values in the 128-255 range take up two bytes instead of one?

Here are some errors I got right now during bootstrap after a fresh checkout:

Wrote c:/eclean/bld/emacs/lisp/international/quail.elc

In toplevel form:

File local-variables error: (error "Local variables entry is missing the suffix")
