Even _I_ keep iso-8859-1, 7-bit approximations and utf-8. Rather than
make a "minimal", it might be enough to just relax "--with-charsets" and
"--without-charsets" with empty lists to mean these three. I don't think
it would be any problem to make it impossible to configure less than these
three with an autoconf option.
