I think that there is no package that have lib/charset.alias in PLIST.
Only converters/libiconv have share/examples/libiconv/charset.alias
and copy to lib/ using REQD_FILES.

The charset.alias file should be maintained by converters/libiconv, I think.
But, as far as I understand correctly, when pkgsrc uses builtin libintl,
no package maintains the charset.alias file now.
