When you set LC_ALL=C you "misconfigure" the environment.

It appears we're miscommunicating. I'm not suggesting to set LC_ALL=C for Emacs only. I'm suggesting to set LC_ALL=C everywhere. If your display can't handle non-ASCII characters, then GCC, coreutils, and many other applications will generate what appears to be gibberish in UTF-8 locales. The fix is simple: avoid UTF-8 locales if you can't display UTF-8. This is not an issue specific to Emacs, or to curved single quotation marks.
