Previously, you needed to define UTF8 (only) when compiling for
slang1-utf8; if you didn't (or if the wrong library was installed
due to the faulty diversion), things silently broke. His change
enforces this define, and things won't build if it's not set.
I did suggest he remove this requirement altogether, but he seems to
prefer to leave a half-fix in place, expecting the package maintainer to
finish it. (Judging by the length of time these RC bugs sat around, this
probably means it'll never be fixed.)
I don't think this affects anything not already building for
slang1-utf8; to them, the only change is that the drop-in utf8
diversion is no longer available.
