Aha, so a patch that would replace all the iconv functionality with
gconvert could work then?

It's indeed a little bit more work. Not undoable. 

Anyway, my only goal was/is to get rid of the iconv-detect.c thingy in
the configure script, which is making cross compilation a little bit
harder (a burden I'd rather don't put on packagers who'll target
different architectures).

Other than perhaps removing code, it doesn't look like GIConv adds a lot
to e_iconv_*
