Maybe it needs to be some specific type? (At least, it doesn't need
to be void *.)
> * Where is defined the struct __tag_iconv_t?
As the name suggests, it seems just a tag. The internal functions
converts (casts) iconv_t objects to its own internal type (struct
_citrus_iconv * in our case), no definition is needed.

I guess AbiWord inappropriately assumes GNU implementation? If so, to
be fixed is AbiWord.
