bug-gnu-libiconv is the right channel for reporting this, not
bug-gnu-gettext. But anyway...

The error means that either the input file is not in CP1250, or that its
contents cannot be converted to ASCII without losing too much contents.

You can determine the line where the first problematic character occurs
by looking which is the last line in the generated output file. libiconv-1.10
will directly report line numbers.
