Highlights from the release notes:

* GApplication now has binding-friendly API to handle
  commandline options: g_application_add_main_option


* g_clear_pointer and g_clear_object no longer use atomics

* The Unicode support has been updated to version 7.0
  of the Unicode standard

* GNotification now supports priorities for notifications

* GCredentials has gained NetBSD support

* GMutex now uses a faster, native implementation on Linux

* Many bugfixes found by static analysis, including potential fd leaks
  and NULL pointer dereferences.

* Increased use of (nullable) attribute on out values and return types
  now that it is supported (mostly from porting Vala metadata).

* use XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP for OnlyShowIn/NotShowIn handling of desktop
  files, deprecating g_desktop_app_info_set_desktop_env()

* add support for g_desktop_app_info_get_implementations() to find
  desktop files that have an Implements= line for a given interface

* GHmac has gained SHA-512 support

* support the new mimeapps specification (most notably, moving the
  assoications/defaults configuration to ~/.config/mimeapps.list).

* libgobject is now linked -Wl,-z,nodelete when possible to avoid errors
  when gobject is used from a module for a program that does not itself
  use gobject and that module is unloaded/reloaded

* ... and many other bug fixes.

* Many translations updated.

Add a comment explaining why we need to force --with-libiconv=gnu for
the ICONV_TYPE=gnu case.  Suggested by wiz.

Log message:
Put back CONFIGURE_ARGS.gnu-iconv, it is required for the ICONV_TYPE=gnu
case to avoid conflicts between the native libiconv and iconv.h from GNU
libiconv and ensure only GNU libiconv is used.  Discussed with prlw1.
