Jack may like the OPS version iconv, but I think the way to handle that is
to identify what you want from OPS then get it onto IBMs list of things to
add to the YUM install. IBM will have next to no way of knowing what
Jacks preferences are vs. some other shop.

Since Jessie and company loaded different directory structures, you can keep
both, just remember OPS will never be updated, so even Jacks' iconv is going
to get old, and fast.

Bingo! This is the kind of stuff I'm talking about.

Interesting. I thought the standard advice was to scrap everything in
5733-OPS, unless specifically needed for finicky software (with hard-coded
paths or extremely version-dependent code).

And I'm *positive* the advice for folks who have never installed 5733-OPS is
not to bother installing it now.
