Be patient.  With the pending changes to autoconf(done), automake(once 
1.5 comes out), binutils(done except for bugfixes), cygwin(in snapshots 
now), and libtool(robert-collins fork)

libiconv builds more-or-less OOB.  As a dll, no less.  See

So, wait for the above-mentioned improvements to percolate thru the

be made official.  That is, if somebody other than me is willing to 
maintain it.
