Fix a long standing bug of lib/charset.alias being overwritten, modified, and
badly tracked by ports.

Make lib/charset.alias a file only provided by converters/libiconv
Create a new USES: charsetfix, that will modify in post patch the to
prevent a port from modifying/overwritting the charset.alias file during make
Prevent devel/gettext from installing that files.
Fix a couple of ports that actually touch charset.alias during the build phase.

Based on a patch by ale

Iconv cleanup, stage 1a: remove `g' prefix from binaries, headers, libraries and
manpages installed by libiconv (aka GNU iconv) and add similar `b'-prefixes
into components installed by iconv (aka BSD iconv). The reason why we do this
is because unfortunately BSD iconv become abadonware (author doesn't maintain
it anymore), while number of ports that need functional iconv library grows
very fast, thus creating significant overhead due to patches needed to make
ports working with prefixed GNU iconv. For compatibility reasons create
symlinks in GNU iconv, so that all ports that expect GNU iconv to have `g'
prefix should work unmodified until all those `g'-hacks are wiped out.

- Remove useless USE_LIBTOOL;   - properly name shared libraries (get rid of
bogus .so.X.Y convention);   - add files missed from pkg-plist (documentation); 
 - don't waste time building/running tests included into distribution.

Upgrade to 1.7... Run included tests after the build... Maintainers   (gnome@)
were informed a couple of days ago, but are impressively silent   and I've been
using KDE/libxml2 linked against this library since with   no problem.
