Getting tons of these while building rpm on Redhat 9.

"Malformed UTF-8 character (%s)" is a perl warning message.

It has many valid sources but in the case of RH9 it is probably caused by the default LANG setting having a reference to UTF-8. Something like this:

    $ echo $LANG

RH 8 and 9 use perl 5.8.0 which responds to directives in the locale. However, since the target programs probably don't contain or aren't processing Unicode data you get these warnings.

Unless it has some other undesired side-effect the workaround is to set the LANG to a non UTF setting:

    $ export LANG=en_US
