First of all, I don't think that the compiler supports reading
configuration files (search paths or whatever else) in a different
codepage than the current ACP. Since that won't be UTF-8 on MS Windows,
this is not supported. As far as I know, -Fc... is used only for source
files, not for configuration files, and it's probably more appropriate
that way. It might be possible to add special support for recognizing
the BOMs and use that for deciding on the format, but nothing like that
has been implemented yet for the compiler according to my knowledge.
