	www/raggle 0.4.4 from pkgsrc HEAD does not work correctly for
	After starting the application there is some activity over the
	network but it does not display any feed items.
	After I stop the program, there is the following error message for
	all but one of the 19 feeds in the default configuration:

	  error: invalid encoding ("ISO-8859-1//TRANSLIT", "UTF-8")

	in $HOME/.raggle/feeds.yaml.
	The last feed shows
 	  "Couldn't get URL \"\": HTTP Error: 404 \"Not Found\"."
	which seems to be correct, there is no such file available.

	The error message points in the direction of the NetBSD
	implementation of iconv.
	The command
		echo | iconv -f "ISO-8859-1//TRANSLIT" -t "UTF-8"
	produces an error message while
		echo | /usr/pkg/bin/iconv -f "ISO-8859-1//TRANSLIT" -t "UTF-8"
	does not.
	Install ruby18-base, ruby-ncurses and raggle, start raggle and see
	it fail.
	Build ruby18-base with converters/libiconv? Forcing this with
	USE_GNU_ICONV=yes did _not_ work for me.
