I'm not completely sure but this error message generally means there
are non-Ascii characters in the source file which shouldn't be there.
So, since the original source files are fine I guess your files are
corrupted in some way, maybe while extracting the archive.
Have a look at libsylph/account.c and check around line 117 to see how
it looks and/or re-download the sources, extract them (don't use
WinZip, it's known to mishandle line break characters sometimes) and
try again.
