* A flakey "p4" test has been removed.
+ * The code and tests assume that the system supplied iconv() would
+ always use BOM in its output when asked to encode to UTF-16 (or
+ UTF-32), but apparently some implementations output big-endian
+ without BOM. A compile-time knob has been added to help such
+ systems (e.g. NonStop) to add BOM to the output to increase
+ portability.
