Sure, use an initializer.  Not sure if this breaks anything.  The test
suite is clean.

(GNU C obviously didn't support that when the code was written.)

Thanks,

localedef: Use initializer for flexible array member [BZ #24950]

2019-08-30  Florian Weimer  <fweimer@redhat.com>

	[BZ #24950]
	* locale/programs/charmap.h (struct charseq): Turn bytes into a
	flexible array member.
	* locale/programs/ld-ctype.c (ctype_finish): Use initializer for
	replace.

i didn't know an initializer would be enough.

is it ok to change {'?','\0'} to {'\0'} ?
