wc f.e. complains in similar way. Actually I caught this sentence there.

Fedora Team obligates its members to convert all documentation stuff to UTF-8.
NetBSD couldn't go in the same way, I think.
But most of new versions of the famous tools are going to be UTF-8
(wide char internally) compatible. Thus, less, wc, e.t.c. are
complaining on that kind of symbols which are looked like Unicode
