In fact, we need more detailed check -- if CP850 does not work through
system's iconv due various facts including absence of system's iconv
library, then we need to check whether dynamic loading is working properly
and use our charset module CP850 or check whether it was asked to be compiled in
statically into smbd as both those are solutions to the problem.
