Strange issues with octave+swig+UTF8 in rawhide

The check in the plplot package for the octave bindings are failing in
rawhide. I point my finger at gcc :), but I have no idea what is going on so
just putting this out there.
plplot uses a swig generated interface for the octave wrapper. By the time
the swig wrapper is calling the plplot C function I'm seeing UTF8 string
pointers pointing to garbage (or perhaps just off by a byte, who knows).
I've rebuilt swig, then octave, but no avail. So, if anyone sees anything
strange in this regard and fixes it, let me know.
