Hmm... My environment is Debian 3.0 and RedHat 7.3 both using
glibc-2.2.5. iconv in glibc-2.2.5 seems UCS-2 as native byteorder.

Do you worry about existence of UCS-2LE/UCS-2BE? If so, how about
doing like this?
cd = iconv_open ((char *)str, "UCS-2BE");
cd = iconv_open ((char *)str, "UCS-2LE");
if (cd == (iconv_t)-1)
cd = iconv_open ((char *)str, "UCS-2");
