In some sense, there are two types of word files in the database
directory. The db.words.db file is data, the db.wordlist file is ASCII

If you're saying that the db.wordlist file is now no longer text, I would
make sure nothing in your build environment (i.e. compilers, libraries,
etc.) have changed. The code to write the db.wordlist file uses fairly
standard library calls to write text.
