hmm; also: Brane wants to compile a version of GNU gettext which is compiled
with '#undef HAVE_ICONV'; I don't know if such a compile would export
bind_textdomain_codeset()?

If there were a portable way to tell any gettext not to translate that would
be great; for now this seems to be the way to do it, but if there are
alternatives I'd like to know about them!

bye,

Erik.
