BTW, XDG's L10N strategy is completely wrong.
It was the way Microsoft had used last century, and has thrown away finally.
XDG is 10+ yrs behind.

Bug #5601: Ruby 1.9.3 fails to compile in directories with accent in their names

Trying to compile ruby in a directory with a name containing accents fails :

To reproduce, use a directory named "Téléchargements" (as xdg-users-dir create it on some French Linux boxes).

Download the ruby tar archive, place it in this directory, untar it and then try the stanza "./configure && make" :

$ ./configure
(...)
$ make
(...)
linking miniruby
./tool/mkconfig.rb:11:in `require': incompatible character encodings: ASCII-8BIT and US-ASCII (Encoding::CompatibilityError)
   from ./tool/mkconfig.rb:11:in `<main>'
