The GNU libiconv package provides an iconv() implementation, for use on
systems which don't have one, or whose implementation cannot convert
from/to Unicode.

This is the first release specific for cygwin-1.7.  The only differences
between this package and the earlier libiconv-0.12-1 (released for both
cygwin-1.5 and cygwin-1.7) are (1) compiled against the cygwin-1.7 DLL
and its import library, and (2) documentation changes. There is no
corresponding "simultaneously released" version of libiconv solely for
cygwin-1.5; libiconv-0.12-1 will most likely be the final libiconv
update for the cygwin-1.5 distribution, and future libiconv development
will continue with this libiconv-0.12-10 package for cygwin-1.7 only.

COMPILER USED: gcc-3.4.4-3 and g++-3.4.4-3
Later updates MAY use gcc-4.3, but will be accompanied by DLL version
number bumps for all C dlls.

Changes (libiconv-0.12-1 ---> libiconv-0.12-10)

* Fork from cygwin-1.5 package development stream
* Updated packaging to use (cygwin-1.7-specific) cygport 0.9.2
  rather than legacy cygport 0.4.x.

All tests pass.
