I asked a few weeks ago on standards@ why we weren't using Citrus
iconv, which is what NetBSD uses, and seems to be in a somewhat
better state than this. It also provides various wide character
conversion routines that overlap with what tjr@ has already done
in FreeBSD, so we'd have to sort that out. And we'd have to sort
out a gazillion ports that want -liconv.
