no errors on gedit say

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.
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.
