I downloaded UTF8tools from the wiki page and compiled it without problems.
I don't see UnicodeToUtf8 with 3 parameters anywhere. LazUTF8 has 2 versions:
 function UnicodeToUTF8(CodePoint: cardinal): string; // UTF32 to UTF8
 function UnicodeToUTF8(CodePoint: cardinal; Buf: PChar): integer; //
UTF32 to UTF8

unicodeinfo.pas looks OK. You have another version of UnicodeToUtf8()
coming from somewhere.

Unit LazUnicode has iterators for both codepoints and Unicode "characters".
