Timur is the FreeBSD maintainer and we went through
a lot of pain to get rid of an unworkable iconv detection
routines. Timeur's position is that biconv is completely
broken and not even work using (even as a last resort).
FreeBSD 4.6 is so old I would rather not cater to it.
No one has complained about the change since biconv
was removed so I believe this is ok.
My vote is for this change to be reverted to prevent future
confusion on what actually works on FreeBSD.
