There is no such thing as "host-libiconv". We do not need it, because
we assume the host system is iconv-capable.

The only thing gettext-tiny does for the target is install the wrapper
gettext program, so it certainly does not need libiconv.

The right fix is to remove this conditional libiconv dependency
entirely, and probably we should do the same for the gettext-gnu
