I'm attempting to upgrade to gnupg 1.4 from pkgsrc.  Compilation
"appears" to be fine, but the make never finishes due to failures
in gnupg-1.4.0/checks. All of the checks fail thusly:

Making all in checks
gmake[2]: Entering directory `/usr/pkgsrc/security/gnupg/work.i386/gnupg-1.4.0/checks'
./gpg_dearmor > ./pubring.pkr < ./pubring.pkr.asc
gpg: conversion from `utf-8' to `646' not available

I'm really stumped as to where to look to figure out what the
problem is.  My only hunch, given that it seems to be doing
something with character conversion, was that maybe the
dependency on libiconv was wrong, but I've confirmed that I have
the latest version installed, and that was my only real guess.
Any hints on where to look to diagnose this problem would be much
