Boost.Locale is a new library in trunk.

Actually it shows that the Boost.Locale library can't be build,
because it requires either ICU or iconv, or win32 API to be available
at least.

Two things:

1. Why does it stop testing if one library can't be build?

   What can be done to fix it?

2. It is very strange that the system does not finds iconv - it is
   Linux and it is the a part of libc's API.

   Any clues why this code:

   #include <iconv.h>

   int main()
      iconv_t d = iconv_open(0,0);

   Fails to compile?
