> Make the *compilation* buffer be encoded in UTF-8

In the interests of not getting users confused, and also to make the
terminology right, let me note that buffers in Emacs are not encoded,
neither in UTF-8 or Latin-1, nor in any other similar encoding.
Characters are only encoded by Emacs when it writes the buffer to a
file or sends it to some program.

What you probably wanted to say was ``make Emacs decode the compiler's
output as UTF-8''.  That is, things need to be set up so that Emacs
interprets the byte stream from the compiler as UTF-8 encoding of
Unicode characters.  It will then decode those bytes into the internal
representation used to store characters within Emacs buffers.
