Be sure that your answer correspond to declaration of package you have included for maintain :
libiconv is part of glibc , iconv functionality defined on http://www.gnu.org/software/libiconv/
i'm understand - easiest way to say it's not a bug,...
for latest iconv do
git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/libiconv.git
and you will get full source of iconv - and you will see that in your source is missed many files related to many encodings ...
These are all latin characters.
