    I think it doesn't work.  Emacs needs that table and the other
    mapping char-tables to decode non-ascii characters in files
    that are loaded before dumping.

Any table which is needed by Emacs to read those files
will inevitably be include in the dumped Emacs.

Can we arrange to autoload (later) the files which need these tables?

    Anoher way to avoid this problem is, I think, to have a
    portable dumper.

Do you mean a portable replacement for unexelf and friends?
How would that help this?
I don't see the connection.
