during the build of a new package on NetBSD 3.1 I saw the following

  iconv: iconv_open(UTF-8, tis-620): Invalid argument

As I found out, tis-620 is the "Standard for Thai Character Codes for
Computers". "iconv -l" did not show this codeset and a search in the
current source tree did not find any occurrence of this string outside
of the gnu/dist/ directory.
I suppose this is not yet supported by the iconv implementation, neither
in NetBSD 3 nor NetBSD-current?
