mini-iconv is a tiny iconv library that handle "UTF-8", "ASCII", "ISO-8859-1". Coulld be used for embedded devices for example. It's only 5K for shared and 2K for static.
Usefull in cross-compile device using uclibc and software dependant on it (exim for example).

This looks quite useful, but I think the URLs need updating now? Just trying to figure out the changes required right now?
this patch also has few defunct url's but some of them still work.
perhaps mirroring those links would be good idea? it seems quite rarely used stuff and it's not huge...

Here is a refreshed ebuild
Note also that uclibc latest (.32?) seems to have working iconv support builtin, although it requires some patch that you can find on the uclibc mailing list in order to build locales *under* uclibc build root (rather than using a glibc build root)
I tried a minimal build using a single locale and I think it added something like 50KB to the build (which is ok for *my* needs)
Worth a look perhaps?
I am not sure if it's possible to say build uclibc with iconv, but no locale (for smaller size)?
Yes it provide iconv as a binary, not a lib or I mischeck ? Is that patch needed to build libiconv.so ?
