The HP iconv has non-standard names for charsets. It knows the UTF-8
charset only by the name "utf8". While GnuPG hardcodes "utf-8". If you
are root, tweak the /usr/lib/nls/iconv/config.iconv file to add an
"utf-8" to "utf8" alias.

By the way: LANG alone suffices to set a value for all locale
categories. Do not use LC_ALL, unless you have a Good Reason.
Software should be written to deal with every conceivable error
