The GNU libiconv package provides an iconv() implementation, for use on
systems which don't have one, or whose implementation cannot convert
from/to Unicode.

[[ compiled using gcc-4.3.4-3 ]]

As expected now that cygwin-1.7.1 has been officially released, this
libiconv package is available exclusively for cygwin-1.7.

Changes since libiconv-1.13-10
* update to latest upstream release
* Force use of POSIX-compliant signature for iconv()
