Knowing that LEDE's lack of compiling IDN support for dnsmasq prompted 
this question I started investigating how easy it would be to do.

It highlighted an issue with LEDE/Openwrt libidn package install script 
- fix PR here https://github.com/openwrt/packages/pull/3925

Another build option for LEDE's dnsmasq package is currently lurking in 
my LEDE repo - I've not done a PR on that yet as I'm unsure how 
LEDE/openwrt handles building a base package (dnsmasq) which references 
libs outside the base build (openwrt/packages)
