Cool. We've wanted this for GCJ and libjava for a long time.

On some systems (eg Solaris), the system iconv is buggy, so it would be
nice to be able to override the system implementation with the in-tree
libiconv in those cases. We already have a bunch of workarounds in GCJ
and libjava to deal with the Solaris iconv.
