[bug-gnu-libiconv] GNU libiconv Japanese extra encodings

GNU libiconv supports the following Japanese extra encodings. 

- EUC-JISX0213
- Shift-JISX0213
- ISO-2022-JP-3

However, these names are the one of the draft. 

The formal nomenclature is EUC-JIS-2004, and is Shift_JIS-2004, and 
ISO-2022-JP-2004 respectively. 
(To our regret, it is not registered in IANA.)

Therefore, the patch that added these alias was made. 
Please execute make -f Makefile.devel after applying the patch. 

By the way,
It is different in old standard (EUC-JISX0213, ...) and new standard 
(EUC-JIS-2004, ....) by 10 characters. 
However, there are not so many things that distinguish these 
Moreover, 10 characters are added by correcting 2004-07-31 in GNU 
(EUC-JIS-2004, and is Shift_JIS-2004, and and ISO-2022-JP-2004 will be 
strictly supported in GNU libiconv. )
Therefore, it is enough in the addition of alias.
