Well, these are the sort of reasons the project has not wanted to get
into the business of providing binaries. There are always going to be
things someone needs. If we provide Python bindings based on 2.6,
someone will want them for 2.4 or 2.5.

To answer your question, you would have to get your binaries from
someone that provides what you want. Note, iconv is not used on
Windows. I assume you meant lib_intl though for the translations.
AFAIK, we could not use that in an ASF-distributed binary because it
is LGPL.
