This is bogus. A working, standard-compliant iconv(3) implementation by
default replaces unconvertable characters with something like '?'. IIRC
glibc doesn't fall into this category, but that is a separate issue. So
the warning doesn't really apply at least to the Citrus implementation
and I think also not to Solaris.
