OK, then the Linux manual pages are not the right place either.

I would actually prefer to have this in the autoconf manual, side-by-side
to the "Shellology" chapter, because
  - gnulib so far doesn't provide a "make install" that would install a
    gnulib.info documentation file.
  - Nearby to "Shellology", both would be misplaced, but at least people
    know where to look :-)

I volunteer to write portability notes about the iconv() function.
