creates a range where of consecutive code points that map to the same

Use a to set @INC in miniperl when building extensions.

With the build tools now shipped in various subdirectories of cpan/ and dist/
we need to add several paths to @INC when invoking MakeMaker (etc) to build

The previous approach of using $ENV{PERL5LIB} was fragile, because:
a: It was hitting the length limit for %ENV variables on VMS
b: It was running the risk of race conditions in a parallel build -
   ExtUtils::Makemaker "knows" to add -I../..lib, which puts lib at the *front*
   of @INC, but if one parallel process happens to copy a module into lib/
   whilst another is searching for it, the second may get a partial read
c: Overwriting $ENV{PERL5LIB} breaks any system where any of the installed
   build tools are actually implemented in Perl, if they are relying on
   $ENV{PERL5LIB} for setup

This approach

a: Doesn't have %ENV length limits
b: Ensures that lib/ is last, so copy targets are always shadowing copy
c: Only affects miniperl, and doesn't touch $ENV{PERL5LIB}

Approaches that turned out to have fatal flaws:

1: Using $ENV{PERL5OPT} with a module fails because ExtUtils::MakeMaker
   searches for the build perl without setting lib, and treats the error
   caused by a failed -M as "not a valid perl 5 binary"
2: Refactoring ExtUtils::MakeMaker to *not* use -I for lib, and instead rely
   on $ENV{PERL5LIB} [which includes "../../lib"] fails because:
   some extensions have subdirectories, and on these EU::MM correctly uses
   -I../../../lib, where as $ENV{PERL5LIB} only has space for relative paths,
   and only with two levels.

This approach actually takes advantage of ExtUtils::MakeMaker setting an -I
option correct for the depth of directory being built.

Certain characters are not placed in EXACTish nodes because of problems

those characters were caught.  This catches all but those in \N{}
constructs; which is coming later.

This does not use FOLDCHAR, which doesn't know the difference between
/d and /u; instead it uses ANYOFV, which does handle those cases already,
at the expense of larger (in storage) regexes for these few characters.

adding FOLDCHARU, and fixing the code where it doesn't work properly now.
