lib edit --enable-widec option breaks tab-completion

I've found that compiling against macports libedit, which is configured for wide-char/UTF-8 (--enable-widec option), breaks tab completion. The program that I'm building is bundled with libedit and compiles it without UTF-8 support. In this case tab completion works. Is it okay to install this linked libedit library as part of the port?
