I played a hunch.  It's -xstrconst.  Looks like the lifting of static
strings into the rodata section breaks when the strings contain embedded
nuls (which isn't unreasonable, since that makes them not valid C strings;
I haven't checked the standard to see if this is really allowed).

I turned them into initialized static const char arrays, which seems to
have made Forte happy.
