The new apr-iconv library needs to be taught to consume apr. I'll
do the Win32 work if someone will tackle the build side of Unix.

Note the end app [SVN] shouldn't be aware of it. We need one
more macro, something like APR_HAS_APR_ICONV inside of
the apu_private or apu header.

Finished, with the exception of the APR_CHECK_ICONV_INBUF
m4 macro that tests for the iconv prototype differences, and one
more hack to use our apr_* namespace protected entry points
from xlate.c if APR_HAS_APR_ICONV is toggled. We also need
that symbol set up in apu or apu_private.

The first macro sticks the #define APR_ICONV_INBUF_CONST 1
into apr_private.h which we don't see inside of apu_private.h, so
we can't pick it up inside of apr-util/xlate/xlate.c.

If someone who groks m4 much better than I would get this inserted
into apu_private.h from apu_private.h.in ... we would be done with the
new unix / using installed xlate problems.

You all know the ASF position on shipping GNU code, just be aware that
will be a fork from any Apache releases. I'm trying to get into a position
where -we- build mod_charset_lite on Win32 and are in a position to ship
that example module.

Unless our unix problem with APR_CHECK_ICONV_INBUF is fixed, yes.
If that gets fixed, you should be good for cvs HEAD on APR.
