Anybody knows answer on following questions:
- why libiconv has no support for CP20866 charset (alias for koi8-r)
- or why /usr/local/libdata/charset.alias file is not processed by
- or why evolution-mapi provides mail messages with that charset 

Problem reading mail with evolution + evolution-mapi some messages are
not displayed correctly, on stderr error message about inability to
convert CP20866.

Same error shown by iconv.

$ iconv -f CP20866 -t koi8-r /etc/hosts
iconv: conversion from CP20866 unsupported
iconv: try 'iconv -l' to get the list of supported encodings
