qt-4.x can not decode characters

see difference between :

leafpad gtk2
http://img534.imageshack.us/img534/1899/gtk2.png

file juk.desktop has utf-8 encoding
Code: [Select]
$ file --mime-encoding juk.desktop
juk.desktop: utf-8

we don't have iconv support in glibc ? is that correct ?
if so then qt-4.x is better be compiled with libiconv ?

when i try to compile qt 4.x with iconv support configure fails
Code: [Select]
POSIX iconv auto-detection... ()
g++ -c -pipe -O2 -Wall -W  -I../../../mkspecs/linux-g++ -I. -o iconv.o iconv.cpp
g++ -Wl,-O1 -o iconv iconv.o     
iconv.o: In function `main':

iconv.cpp:(.text+0x44): undefined reference to `libiconv'

Iconv support cannot be enabled due to functionality tests!

ok there is iconv support in glibc and after uninstalling libiconv completely qt4 configure finds posix iconv and enables it so my thread turns into a request iconv support for qt-4.x :)

Code: [Select]
POSIX iconv auto-detection... ()
g++ -c -pipe -O2 -Wall -W  -I../../../mkspecs/linux-g++ -I. -o iconv.o iconv.cpp
g++ -Wl,-O1 -o iconv iconv.o      
POSIX iconv enabled.

gentoo bug report for the same problem
