we can not assume that iconv or recode is available on all target platforms.

I don't understand your argument either, but let me explain mine. The
GIMP should work as checked out of CVS, so either we have UTF-8 po
files in CVS (like GTK+ does) or we need to convert to UTF-8 during
generation of the mo files. This would require the availability of the
necessary tools on the build platform which we can not safely assume.
IMO the easiest solution is to go for UTF-8 po files in CVS.
