I don't know.  I'll have a look at this bug.

There are file/dir names encoded in UTF-8 given as arguments.  We
assume that the shell pass the file names as binary strings (and that
the corresponding directories and files can be created), if I understood
well your previous messages, this is not true in Windows.

We also set LC_ALL=C and LANGUAGE=en in the tests for portability, I do
not know if some other value could be relevant in Windows.

I am not sure that we can do anything to have those tests work for
native windows setups.  Maybe the best would be to skip if on windows as
determined by the HOST_IS_WINDOWS conditional sets in configure.ac.
