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
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 ...
