Default rsync and iconv


I'm using OpenBSD 4.9 and I'm having troubles when rsync'ing data between to a GNU/Linux box. As I have Umlauts in the file names I tried to use rsync's iconv feature to convert between different charsets. But rsync from the OpenBSD packages doesn't support iconv at all:

$> rsync --version
rsync version 3.0.7 protocol version 30
Copyright (C) 1996-2009 by Andrew Tridgell, Wayne Davison, and others.
Web site: rsync.samba.org
64-bit files, 32-bit inums, 32-bit timestamps, 64-bit long ints,
socketpairs, hardlinks, symlinks, IPv6, batchfiles, inplace,
append, no ACLs, no xattrs, no iconv, no symtimes

Are there any ways to get rsync with iconv support without building it from source? And why was iconv support dropped from the rsync binary?

This question is best asked directly of the port's $MAINTAINER, Marc Espie. I could find no prior discussion of your question in the ports@ mailing list archive, nor in CVS logs.

Thanks for the hint. I sent Marc an email and I will post an update when I get an answer.
