I am afraid there is something wrong in
ibraries/javalib/kaffe/io/CharToByteConverter.java and

If ConverterAlias tells to use iconv, getConverterInternal
tries to use iconv.  When getCharToByteIconv or
getByteToCharIconv returns null, getConverterInternal
simply returns null without trying to use non-iconv
