Well, users are downloading the code they don't need already.
For example, if I'm building win32/win64 code, why do I need
all that 'unix' source files. Not to mention the expat, etc.

If your only concern is the size of apr-iconv, then I think
you have a wrong 'concern'.

IMHO the dependency should be straightforward:
1. apr can be used as standalone.
2. apr-util can be used as dependent of apr only.
3. apr-iconv can be used as dependent of above.

That should be the fact for ALL platforms.
