I just realized something ... we're using norm_charmap() wrong.

The purpose of norm_charmap() is to convert a _locale_ character
set (what is returned by nl_langinfo(CODESET)) into a standard MIME
character set.  AFACT, norm_charmap() should almost never be used by nmh
applications; they should be using get_charset() if they need the local
character set.  If it's something in email, we can use it directly and
it should not be run through norm_charmap().

Since the only callers of norm_charmap() should be passing in the locale
character encoding, that should never change within a program, so memory
management should not be an issue.
