Subject: man-db Test failures under musl libc


We are creating a new Linux distribution based on the musl libc focused
on security and reliability.  As such, we run test suites for all of our
packaged software.  The man-db test suite seems to have numerous
failures due to musl's iconv(3) (or more specifically, iconv_open(3))
method not supporting //IGNORE suffixes for character sets.
