This patch assumes that "if user has iconv under MinGW, he has
libcharset.h". Without it, we assume "if user has iconv under MinGW,
he has langinfo.h". If user doesn't have iconv, he needs to say this
via NO_ICONV=1 in both cases. Anyway, if it is a questionable change,
I'll drop it and only keep NO_R_TO_GCC_LINKER change.
