I'm perfectly happy to have it in the main shell; by our standards this
isn't even particularly complicated.

Urk...  that means it hasn't found a suitable library for character set
conversion.  This isn't necessarily wrong if you actually don't have
those facilities.  The two main possibilities are

- environment supports ISO 10646 (plus wchar_t plus wctomb()).
- iconv is present (plus NLS).

See the code around line 4851 of Src/utils.c; you should be able to work
out which preprocessor tests are failing.

It's possible HAVE_WCHAR_H isn't defined if you don't have <wchar.h>
(I'm suggesting this because of the previous difficulties over finding
wchar_t).  It's possible then that wctomb() is actually somewhere else
and we don't need wchar.h at all.  Otherwise, we may have to make do
with what we've got, which compiles and is basically functioning.
