      Description

      From issue #872:
      
      - Don't even think about using the command-line tools on any
        platform whose native (or output) encoding aren't ASCII-based
        (e.g., the various EBCDIC platforms).
      
      The issue is that we blindly assume that C string literals in the source will be
      represented in ASCII -- or rather, an UTF-8 subset. This is simply not the case
      in an EBCDIC environment.
