I have a patch for PR 10656, but cannot test it myself on Solaris 7.  I
may have some help.  Is tomorrow too late for 3.3?

I couldn't reproduce PR 10657.  Solaris 8 has iconv() in libc, anyway, so
I don't believe this is a Solaris problem, nor that it should affect the
3.3 release.

(Java wants to use iconv() whenever it's available regardless of
--disable-nls.  See also prs 10013, 9045.)
