#11368: Pidgin installer for win32 should include iconv.dll

 As of glib 2.12, GTK/Glib doesn't depend on iconv.dll anymore.
 However, Pidgin's libxml2.dll depends on this dll. Currently the Windows
 Pidgin distribution expects that iconv.dll is present in the installed
 GTK+. This behavior becomes problematic in case a third-party GTK+
 distribution is installed. Since iconv.dll is not a GTK+ dependency, these
 third-party distributions aren't required to bundle it anymore (it's
 unreasonable to assume that they will contain every dll they ever included

 Solution: iconv.dll should be included in Pidgin itself.
