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?

Sure, whatever works best for that program.

The obvious concern would be: does that impeded the program's ability to process UTF-8 input?
