The libintl I put in the distro was compiled with iconv support turned
off, so we don't include an iconv.dll. That's because a) we don't _want_
our intl.dll to do any conversions, and b) it's quite unhygienic to have
SVN depend on two iconv packages. I'm guessing your intl.dll was
unchanged, and the missing iconv.dll bit people.

Maybe, but that's probably unnecessary. In any case, I use a "normal"
gettext package for building, and only replace intl.dll in the distro.
