I just realized that it was pretty easy to check. I just have to look at
the build logs. Nope. No -liconv. After "all that trouble" to install
it, gcc only randomly detected it in certain directories.
I don't think I'll make this a priority for the testing releases but I'll
see if I can tweak something for the real release.
