Differences between iconv from ports and iconv in base (transliteration)

I'm in the process of changing ports from ports iconv to iconv in base.
I noticed that transliteration doesn't work in base as it does with
iconv from ports. Examples:

ports: "TZst"
base: "Tst"

ports: "TEURst"
base: "Tst"

Conversion done using:
iconv_open("ISO8859-1//IGNORE//TRANSLIT", "UTF-8");

Any ideas?
