Your terminal setup is wrong then.  If you are running GCC in UTF-8 locale
(such as en_US.UTF-8), it prints the opening/closing quotes as UTF-8 non-ASCII
characters (\xe2\x80\x98 and \xe2\x80\x99).
If your terminal can't handle this and can't be changed to grok that, you should
not run programs in UTF-8 locale.  In say en_US locale (or C locale) GCC will use
' as both opening and closing quote.
