OK this patch afforded some progress on cutting down the `make test`
spurious "Malformed UTF-8" warnings.  comp/require.t is now almost
managable and the grand totals of 7674 + Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes's patch
wind up being:

 % ls -l make.out_0
 -rw-r--r--   1 PVHP     OMVSGRP  2490937 Nov 14 13:32 make.out_0
 % grep Malformed make.out_0 | wc -l
   38018

One of the warnings seen in copious quantities seemed to be this one:

 Malformed UTF-8 character (0 byte, need 2) at op/bop.t line 139.
 Malformed UTF-8 character (0 byte, need 2) at op/bop.t line 139.

I'll see about adding a C<dowarn = 0;> to utf8.c and report again.
