charscript.el seems alright, it's installed only as an elc file, and
seems okay (I've diffed the .elc in the git repo with the installed
copy, no differences, then I recompiled the repo version via
‘byte-compile-file’, and diffed again, no differences).

In fontset.el, ‘old-italic’ appears in function ‘setup-default-fontset’,
called by ‘create-default-fontset’.  There, after the call to
‘new-fontset’, there's a dolist expression commented «For simple
scripts», which runs this expression on a list of symbols including

(set-fontset-font "fontset-default"
                    script (font-spec :registry "iso10646-1" :script script)
                    nil 'append)

I tried this:

(let ((script 'old-italic))
  (set-fontset-font "fontset-default"
                    script (font-spec :registry "iso10646-1" :script script)
                    nil 'append))

Which gave me this backtrace:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "Invalid script or charset name: 
  set-fontset-font("fontset-default" old-italic #<font-spec nil nil nil nil 
iso10646-1 nil nil nil nil nil nil nil ((:script . old-italic))> nil append)
  (let ((script (quote old-italic))) (set-fontset-font "fontset-default" script 
(font-spec :registry "iso10646-1" :script script) nil (quote append)))
  eval-region(146 322 t #[257 "\300\242b\210\301\207" [(322) (let ((script

:registry "iso10646-1" :script script) nil (quote append)))] 2 "\n\n(fn 
IGNORE)"])  ; Reading at buffer position 146

The only emacs installation on my system is that one from the git repo
which I use daily, and this is the first build I made from this clone of
the repo.  It't virtually impossible that any shadowing happens.  Git
does not report any modified files.

As above.  I'll report this as a bug if you tell me to do so.  I'm
attaching charscript.el as it seems to be a generated file not tracked
by git.
