I also whish to thank Waitman for his debugging work :)

I just tried RawTherapee after rebuilding devel/glib20 with the iconv
related patch, and it works flawlessly! Some small test with filters and
converting also seem to work.

This is on HEAD r261632 amd64. RawTherapee is build with gcc48 and
OpenMP support.

Once, if there is an official patch in the ports tree, is it recommended
to rebuild all dependencies of glib20?

Many thanks to not give up with this issue! RawTherapee is a great raw
processor for both, amateurs and professionals. And it is one of that
great programs, we want to use on different platforms (including Windows).
