I'm talking about the ASCII apostrophe, 0x27. But I get the same result
with RIGHT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK (0x2019). My understanding is that the
ICONV line should unify the two.

I realize that this is really an OS question, not an Emacs question, and
I appreciate you looking into it. Other hunspell consumers (Libreoffice,
Firefox) don't have this problem, though, so it might be something Emacs
wants to be aware of.
