'/usr/lib/' seems to use gconv (which is absent from DSL) rather than libiconv (which is present in DSL).
iconv conversions will fail when using GTK2 apps such as Firefox. A typical warning message is like this:
Code Sample
(firefox.bin:[process-id]): Gdk-WARNING **: Error converting from UTF-8 to STRING: Conversion from character set 'UTF-8' to 'ISO-8859-1' is not supported

May I suggest that libglib2 in future DSL revisions be compiled against libiconv?

Thanks very much.

It would take less trouble to include the gconv modules, and only little space if they only included ones between iso-8859-1 and utf-8..
