It seems that links use its own charset converter in charsets.c.
Why links does not use iconv provided by the system? The converter
in charsets.c is too simple and won't handle double byte charaecters
like Chinese. And there are lot more charset out there that need
glibc 2.2 provides converting most charsets to utf-8.
And any decent system should provider iconv in system library.
Why not use iconv provided by the system?
