[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: libiconv-1.13-1

from/to Unicode.

[[ compiled using gcc-3.4.4-999 ]]

This will most likely be the final libiconv update for the cygwin-1.5
distribution; future development will continue with libiconv-1.13-10 for

Upstream Release Notes for 1.13
* The library and the iconv program now understand platform dependent aliases,
  for better compatibility with the platform's own iconv_open function.
  Examples: "646" on Solaris, "iso88591" on HP-UX, "IBM-1252" on AIX.
* For stateful encodings, when the input ends with a shift sequence followed
  by invalid input, the iconv function now increments the input pointer past
  the shift sequence before returning (size_t)(-1) with errno = EILSEQ. This
  is also like GNU libc's iconv() behaves.
* The library exports a new function iconv_open_into() that stores the
  conversion descriptor in pre-allocated memory, rather than allocating fresh
  memory for it.
* Added CP1131 converter.
