gconvert: add note to avoid transliteration

Add a note to the documentation of g_convert() advising to avoid using
it for transliteration.  Link to g_str_to_ascii().

* could combine with the base character.)
*
* Using extensions such as "//TRANSLIT" may not work (or may not work
* well) on many platforms. Consider using g_str_to_ascii() instead.
*
* Returns: If the conversion was successful, a newly allocated
* nul-terminated string, which must be freed with
* g_free(). Otherwise %NULL and @error will be set.
