I'm not sure this is the best approach as it means we have to
remember in future to do this filtering in the places that need it.

I suspect that we'd do better to filter the entire output file from
check before we diff the golden output and the test output. An
inplace sed modification would be all that is needed like:

        # coreutils 2.20+ changed quote formats in error messages.
        # filter the damage out so that golden images match both old
        # and new versions of coreutils.
        sed -i 's/`/'\''/g' <test output file>

Cheers,

Dave.
