Huh? On mingw, I looked for the presence of the resource info, and found that
in you can access this info through the Windows NT file explorer, via a pop-up
menu on the file's icon. The one in iconv.exe was present, the one in
libiconv.dll was missing. So I added that.

I found it a bit strange that "strings < iconv.exe" showed part of the resource
text, but "strings < libiconv.dll" didn't, although the info was visible in
the file explorer.

Yes, this is needed for the src/Makefile.in.

Ah, you are cross-compiling from Linux? I used a cross-compile from Cygwin;
maybe that makes a difference?
