I took a quick look at the recent check-abi buildbot failure, which
appears to be manpage related:

wireshark.pod around line 3525: Non-ASCII character seen before
=encoding in 'KovE<aacute>ř'. Assuming UTF-8
POD document had syntax errors at /usr/bin/pod2man line 71.

Which is curious, because wireshark.pod.template *does* have an
=encoding line...
[As discussed later on this thread] the current master doesn't give this 
warning but I did notice that the generated man page doesn't contain the 
actual UTF8 characters required by some people's names. E.g., 
"doc/wireshark.1" on my system contains:
       XXXXX XXXXXXXX      <dpb[AT]...]

though, interestingly, Joerg's name got "translated" from what's in AUTHORS (which contains an o-umlaut) to:
       Joerg Mayer              <jmayer[AT]...]

mate-text-editor, at least, thinks the former example is valid, well, if not UTF8, then it thinks it's at least valid something-or-another (it's not showing me X's or replacement characters).
