I don't see any error in gnome-terminal when I open that file in gedit

No, it's not the error for debugging purpose that can be sometimes seen on the stderr. it is the sort of notification to users that the file might be broken. see the attached screenshot.

Comment 3 Akira TAGOH 2012-12-11 09:03:54 UTC
Okay, had looked into it carefully. this is because scripts/w3mhelp-funcdesc.ja.pl.in is encoded as EUC-JP and added at the end of file without any encoding conversion once generated from doc-jp/README.funcs, which is converted into UTF-8 at %prep.
