Hi Tsurutani,

As far as I can tell, this error is caused by the LANG setting which
changes the line:

	if (value.startsWith("\""))

into something that results an unterminated string.  I suppose the
backslash loses its meaning as an escape character.

I found some references to the same error in Google, posted by folks
trying to compile software with different LANG settings.  I haven't
found a general fix yet, but maybe it can be done by building a
character string from individual, unescaped characters, then converting
them to a java.lang.String object for use in the .startsWith() function.

If you could submit a PR to support building with LANG=ja_JP.eucJP, I
would be very appreciative!

Thank you,
