Also, local libintl changes (e.g. those Kaveh sent recently to fix
warnings) need to be sent back upstream or failing that marked GCC LOCAL.
codingconventions.html needs the practice to follow for libintl patches
documented there.

I agree that libintl should move to toplevel (and then hopefully be
autosynced between gcc and src).

What would be the configure rules for which of (system iconv in libc,
installed libiconv, in-tree libiconv) would be used (by default, and any
configure options to override this)?
