AFAIK, we use the *same* GNU/libiconv on Win32 and Linux builds, so I 
can hardly buy that they would work differently. What however does work 
differently is wchar_t: glibc uses UCS-4 and Microsoft uses UCS-2. As 
such, if you want to use UTF-16, you should use uint16_t, otherwise it 
will fail lamely on Linux (or any other non-UCS-2 platform for that 

As for endianness, iconv assumes the locally native one unless 
explicitly selected (e.g. UTF-16LE, UTF-16BE instead of UTF-16).
