For the time being, just make them all uppercase.  (As Doug said, it's easy
maintenance, and it doesn't affect systems which ignore case.)

Many thanks!

The more I think about this case-sensitive problem, the more it seems
like something the GNU gettext people need to deal with.  Since they
are the ones forcing the dependency on libiconv, and calling libiconv
functions from their routines, they are the ones who should be asking
for bug fixes and/or passing the proper parameters to open(), close()
or whatever the relevant libiconv functions are.

If anyone on lynx-dev agrees and has good rapport with the gettext
developers, maybe you could drop them a line?  (Alas, they don't want
to hear from me, I'm afraid :).
