This is a fair point. Now locale_charset() is not
usually separately available on GNU/Linux but it can be
on FreeBSD for example:


I'm guessing that gnulib was always updated with the
latest version, and so for this smallish function
it was simpler and arguably better for gnulib using
programs to consume it from there.

I'd accept a patch that favored the separated version.
