If you'd like to take over maintaining libiconv and gettext -- please,
volunteer -- subject to the approval of the cygwin-apps mailing list. I
don't routinely use alternate character sets. I don't have cygwin-TeX
or LyX or any GUI apps [except xfig] installed. And I sure as hell am
not going to install 150 MB of stuff I won't use, simply to test
alternate character sets in LyX...
I rely on the hours-long internal test suite that ships with gettext.
Cygwin's build doesn't pass all of the tests, only about 98% of them.
Perhaps your problem is covered in the other 2%, and downloading and
building and running the testsuite will help you track down the problem
and provide a fix.
Or, perhaps the problem you observe is caused by a bug that is not
exercised in the test suite. If so, then perhaps you could provide a
patch and a testcase to go with it, that Bruno [the "real" maintainer of
gettext] would be happy to accept.
FWIW, libiconv does seem to pass all of its internal tests.
