So I see. Dom told me yesterday that AbiWord's
official policy re iconv is that all systems besides
Linux (and maybe freebsd) must use libiconv.
We'd probably use it everywhere but apparently Linux
has an even better iconv than libiconv.
Later on when I have a machine I'll try to fix code
like this anyway since it won't hurt but in the mean-
time we should get the build system updated so that it
forces libiconv to be used on all OSes other than
Dom has specified are on the "nice iconv" list.
I think the build system currently forces libiconv on
some systems but not on others based on known problems
that've been reported to us.
