    On HP-UX? Then: In fact the said conversion *is* available, but a
bug makes GnuPG request it under a wrong name, unknown by the HP iconv
library. GnuPG says "utf-8", while HP expects "utf8".

    There may perhaps be a workaround on the system: Creating an alias
utf-8 to utf8 in /usr/lib/nls/iconv/config.iconv or something like that.
There is an alias section, and comments about the expected format.

    Or install libiconv 1.9.2 to replace HP iconv.

Bye!	Alain.
