So you want gump to build a configuration that virtually no users
actually use?  That seems totally useless to me.  Gump should be
building and testing the system as it is intended to be used, if this
was a win32 build, I'd be all for it testing apr-iconv, but it's a
unix build, it should use the support for the platform iconv just like
a normal user would.
