[jjohnstn: initial version of iconv support checked in]

The below is just an FYI.

This means that the iconv stuff could be built into the DLL, bloating the dll
even more I suppose.

Is this something that we want to do?  I vote no, but I thought I should mention
this to the collective wisdom of cygwin-apps since it essentially boils down to
a package issue.

This is just to note that the initial version of Artem Bityuckiy's iconv 
code has been checked in.  It can be activated using the configuration 


Builtin iconv converters can be selected using the configuration option:


This iconv code cannot currently be used with i686-pc-linux-gnu which 
has its own iconv support.

Thanks to Artem for this major piece of work.
