 I would try without LESSCHARSET.  It ought to be able to determine
it from the LANG/LC_CTYPE environment variables, or else from
calling setlocale.

 Umm, errm. <embarrassed/>.  I'm having issues using a dirty build
tree after I exported LC_ALL=C to force the breakage.  At the
moment, everything I try breaks, even after 'make clean'.  In theory,
exporting LANG ought to do it, with minimal side-effects.  Will play
around with it some more.
