In my case it was because I used the “trivial-build-system”.  Unlike the
“gnu-build-system” it does not have a build phase which installs a UTF-8
locale.  The way around it was to reuse the locale setting code in the
“install-locale” phase.

This probably won’t help you as you are already using the
“gnu-build-system” so the build phases should run in a UTF-8 locale.
Could it be that the file is not UTF-8 encoded and you really need some
other encoding?
