My error log with iconv is misleading. Please ignore that portion and
instead use this little php script to check for utf-8 support in pcre


<?php
> if (@preg_match('/\pL/u', 'a') == 1) {
>     echo "PCRE unicode support is turned on.\n";
> } else {
>     echo "PCRE unicode support is turned off.\n";
> }
>
> ?>
>

Also, please check out this thread (lack of pcre utf8 support in RHEL).
