pass --enable-iconv-char-{utf8,utf16le} to unixODBC-2.3.1/configure

As mentioned by Leel in  #447288 (new ebuild dev-db/sqlncli:Microsoft SQL Server ODBC Driver 1.0 for Linux), the package needs unixODBC being built by passing --enable-iconv-char-enc-utf8 and --enable-iconv-char-utf16le to unixODBC/configure. I'm going to attach a patch against dev-db/unixODBC-2.3.1.ebuild. The two newly induced use-flag (iconv-char-enc-utf8 and iconv-ucode-enc-utf16le) names may be a bit long.
Comment 1 Jesus Rivero (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-03-03 23:38:36 UTC
Committed to tree. I added 'unicode' USE-flag since mappings are done using iconv from ASCII  to UTF8 and Unicode default representation is done in UTF16.
