Hello: The problem is not with libiconv, but because libc6's gconv modules are missing. I missed this because I had the gcc1-with-libs.unc packages loaded at that time which contains those modules.
Here is where it fails. strace output:
open("/usr/lib/gconv/gconv-modules.cache", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/lib/gconv/gconv-modules", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
write(2, "iconv: Character encoding transl"..., 51iconv: Character encoding translation not possible
) = 51
write(1, "Starting TMSNC\nVersion: 0.3.2\nPr"..., 72Starting TMSNC
Process ID: 1037
Terminal emulation: rxvt
) = 72
munmap(0x40016000, 4096) = 0
_exit(-1) = ?
Process 1037 detached
p.s. I am very sorry to make you go to all the trouble. I've followed your instruction and linked it to newest libiconv 1.11. Unfortunately, it now becomes very big and has to be made into a .uci. Hopefully gconv modules will be added into DSL soon.
