wvPS and wvPDF aren't really supported all that well. They have a lot of
requirements (like distill, dvips, latex, etc...) so this could be consuming
lots of processor time and result in lossy conversion.
wvText should be working fine, however. Solaris' iconv implementation really
stinks, IMHO, but we have a workaround in CVS. There are a couple of ways to
get around this:
1) Install libiconv from freshmeat.net and recompile
2) Get a recent cut of wvware from CVS and install
(www.sourceforge.net/projects/wvware should tell you how to get there)
#1 is more "correct," but I'd suggest trying #2 first. Give that a try and
if it doesn't work, get back to me.
