Maybe the difference is caused by a different version of iconv being 
used by the new build?

Anyway, the error message says "encoding UTF8 not supported". I believe 
the identifier should be "UTF-8" and not "UTF8".

FYI, "iconv -l" can be used at the command-line to list the encodings 
supported by your version of libiconv.
