Yes, at least as an option to be discussed.

I treat this as elibc_linux++.
Some more questions to think of when deciding to use GNU libiconv on
linux (if answer='yes' then I'd say elibc_linux++):
Does uclibc lack (good) libiconv ?
Are there other libc's possible for linux than glibc and uclibc ?
Are there old glibc's around with bad libiconv implementations ?
If we do not use elibc_linux, and uclibc lacks libiconv, then maybe we
need to know of elibc_uclibc too in prefix...
