I have never tried to do anything with the gettext included in the
lynx distribution. Libiconv is required by the DJGPP port of GNU
gettext. It converts the character sets from those in which the .po
files are written to that of the display on which they are viewed. So
the gettext code substitutes messages in a different language for the
default English messages and the libiconv code converts that message
to the proper format (e.g., from ISO-8859-1 to either Windows or MSDOS
codepage equivalent).

The libiconv code has worked well for me. What kinds of problems were
you having? Feel free to respond off the list if you think it is
off-topic for lynx-dev.
