the issue is that the current cross-compilers delete the `iconv` binary that 
is cross-compile to run on CHOST, not CBUILD.  the native CBUILD `iconv` is 
still available.

if you want to use sys-libs/glibc for a target, atm you need to compile it for 
the target: CBUILD=x86_64 CHOST=arm CTARGET=arm.

this is iconv() from the C library, not the `iconv` binary.

i wish locale support in uClibc was more feature complete ...
