iconv: basesystem vs pkgsrc


Experiencing a conversion error with Glib, I am looking to iconv. I do not understand why there is such a difference between the two iconv binaries in terms of number of supported encodings.

My problem is:
$ echo "hello" | /usr/pkg/bin/iconv -f UTF-8 -t 646
/usr/pkg/bin/iconv: conversion to 646 unsupported
/usr/pkg/bin/iconv: try '/usr/pkg/bin/iconv -l' to get the list of supported encodings

$ /usr/pkg/bin/iconv -l | wc -l

$ /usr/bin/iconv -l | wc -l
