Bug#376159: Open21xx Bug Report
Thanks for the insight. I'll compile it both ways, signed-char and
unsigned-char to make sure everything works before I do a new release.

Given the list of failing architectures, I think the most likely cause
is some code relying on char being signed by default. And indeed,
building the as21 directory with -fsigned-char makes it build for me.
