The INSTALL file in he source states:

"the source files of the fortunes are coded in ISO-8859-15 format,
and are installed as they are by default. If you want to use an other format,
you can specify it by executing the configure script with the option
--with-charset=charset, where charset represents the format to use. To have
the possibility to use this option, you should have the recode program
installed on your system. To get the list of the supported formats, you can
use the -l option of the recode program."

That is why the check seems to be needed; but what do I know...I'm just a n00b... :)
Set me straight as needed, I am not being ironic here; just trying to learn and improve.
