TODO included, make check done. 

Using "--libexecdir=%{_libdir}" does not any changes in result.
And I nevertheless would prefer to trust %configure macro here...

About recode:
There are some reasons to not use it.
- The main Enca goal is to *detect* charset. There are another good programs for
- User always can use Enca with "recode", as Enca is built with external program
support (just run "enca -E recode")
- Charsets which Enca actually operates, are limited by charsets of the problem
languages. All possible charset conversions in this context IMHO are well
supported by standard glibc's iconv. 

Summary: Character set analyzer and detector
The word "converter" is not good here, as converting is just an additional feature.
