Thanks Eric, I had previously ran the setup utility and searched for
iconv and found only the libraries (libiconv and libiconv2). Also,
libiconv2 was pre-installed but I was still getting "command not found"
when I attempted to run iconv. I went ahead and installed the libiconv
package in addition to libiconv2 and it works now... maybe a note in the
package description that libiconv2 does not include the executable?

Huh? iconv is too part of cygwin:
$ cygcheck -p iconv\\.exe
Found 3 matches for iconv\.exe
libiconv/libiconv-1.13.1-1 GNU character set conversion library and
libiconv/libiconv-1.13.1-2 GNU character set conversion library and
libiconv/libiconv-1.14-1 GNU character set conversion library and
Maybe you just need to rerun setup.exe and install the libiconv
package, if you don't already have it present on your machine.
